aFor grades 3-12, only
aTest your mettle against the chess players throughout the metro area! Each participant will play SIX GAMES OF TOURNAMENT CHESS!
a? Team Trophy: Schools must have at least four players from their school in order to compete for a team trophy (all individuals may participate regardless of the number of players for their school). We take the best four scores from each school and combine them. The school with the highest combined score will receive the Team Champion Trophy. In addition, we will have a runner-up trophy for the second-place team.
a? Individual Tournament: Students will play six games in a Swiss Style, non-elimination tournament. Players are paired randomly for the first round, and the following matches are based on their tournament scores. If a player wins more games, they will also play other players who have won more often. By the sixth round, we will have a clear champion.
a? Medals & Trophies: Trophies are given out to 1st - 5th place. Medals are given out based on your performance. Every student will get either a trophy or a medal by the end of the day.
aMany games use clocks. USCF tiebreaker rules will be used. Visit our Chess Tournament FAQ page at YouthEnrichmentLeague.com for more answers to your question
