Participants younger than 6th grade must be accompanied by an adult.
There is a $12 registration fee per player.

REGISTRATION IS NOT OPEN

All players must register to let us know you intend to play. “Invitational & Open Players” will be determined by their Chess Instructor or the Tournament Director the day of the event. This is a great opportunity to play against students from other schools!

“Open” Chess players will be broken into 2 levels of experience (Earth – Beginner Level) & (Wind – Intermediate Level) based on their known club participation experience level. Non-Association school players will be placed in the “Wind” Section.

Tournament schedules overlap so players can only enter one tournament.
