Tournaments

Chess tournaments are a great way for children to practice, and it doesn't hurt that they can win trophies!  Our tournaments are beginner friendly, and hundreds of students every year play in their first tournament ever with us.  If you have questions about how chess tournaments work in general, and how Silver Knights' tournaments work in particular, check out our FAQ.  

We also offer Tournament Training classes! Each week, the students will play a rated tournament game and analyze that game with coaches. It is a fantastic way to improve your child's chess while having fun!

 

Our fall tournaments will be posted soon! If you'd like an e-mail once this happens, sign up for our monthly(ish) Tournament Newsletter!
