Tournament details (NYChessKids site)

Schedule for 2019-2020:

  1. Sunday October 20 (results)

  3. Sunday February 9 (register)
  4. Sunday May 3 (register)

The tournaments are open to all students and kids from other 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!
