Waukee Chess Tournament
Test your mettle against the best chess players throughout the metro area! Each participant participates in SIX ROUNDS OF TOURNAMENT CHESS! This is a fantastic opportunity for students to match up their skills against players of similar age and skill level. Sign up today to take on the best!
† Team Trophy: We take the top four scores from each school to calculate the team champion. Whether there is 4 players from a school, 1 player or 20 players. We take the top 4 scores across divisions k-5. The school with the highest combined score will receive the TEAM CHAMPION TROPHY. We will have a runner-up trophy for the second place team.
† Individual Tournament: Students will play 6 rounds against students of similar grade level and skill level (k-1, 2-3, 4-5). We reserve the option to combine or separate grade levels based on the number of participants.
† Swiss Play: Participants are matched against others of similar skill level and grade. If a player wins more games, they will play other players who have won more often as well. By the 6th round, we will have a clear champion.
† Medals & Trophies: Trophies are given out to 1st – 5th place in each grade level category. Medals are given out based on your performance. Every student will get either a trophy or a medal by the end of the day.
Official USCF rules will apply. Visit our Chess Tournament FAQ page at YouthEnrichmentLeague.com for more answers to your questions.
