All Chess4Life tournaments provide students with an excellent opportunity to learn and practice important life skills. Sportsmanship, patience, concentration, respect, and the Chess4Life ideal of "Win, Draw, Learn" are some of the many skills necessary for successful tournament play and life!
This year, Chess4Life is offering Saturday Tournaments that serve as State Qualifiers and Beginner's Tournaments (U500). Students who have never played in a tournament before or who have a rating under 500 will automatically be placed into our four-round, Beginner Section. Students in the Beginner Section will receive extra instruction from our coaches as to how tournaments work, but will not be eligible for State qualification.
All other students will automatically be entered into our State Qualifying Sections. This event is for players grades K-6th with an open section for grades K-12th. Everyone will play five games (excluding byes due to odd numbers). If a player earns three points, they qualify for the State Elementary Tournament in April. (Registering for the State tournament is still required after qualifying.)
