This is a chess tournament for grades K-8.
Children are divided into sections based on age and skill. Mini-swisses attract a wide range of skill levels, the ratings in one section can vary quite a bit! Students play only against opponents in their own section. The first round is at 4:00PM, and the tournament concludes around 7:00PM. Each participant will play three games.
* Players should arrive around 3:50PM
* The first round begins at 4:00PM
* All sections are non-elimination, and all players participate in all three rounds
* For players using chess clocks, the time control is G/25 with a 5-second time delay
Online registration is $35 before noon Tuesday or $40 Sunday before 8 am. On-site registration is $45. Players who register on site should do so no later than five minutes before the first round. (Players can still register after that, but they will miss the first round.) Chess sets are provided, but you can bring a clock if you have one.
