Physical (Lower Division) Tournament details (NYChessKids site)

Schedule for 2020-2021:

  1. Sunday June 7 RESULTS – Summer #1
  2. Sunday July 12 RESULTS – Summer #2
  3. Sunday Sep 13 RESULTS – Summer #3
  4. Sunday Nov 15 INFO REGISTER ENTRIES – Fall #1

The tournaments are open to students from all schools. Advance registration is required to play.

These events have been the starting point for many of our students in the past, a place where they learned about competition for the first time. The setting is familiar and stress-free – the kids get to play a real tournament while feeling completely at home. Players are grouped into sections by strength, so beginners will not have to play strong players. If your child has never played a tournament before, this is the right event for them – the “No Score” or “Novice” section will be perfect to start.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us, or just come by the next tournament – we will be happy to give you pointers. All Q300 community members are welcome – this is a very social event!
