For grades k-5 (divided by grade)
Test your mettle against the best players in the Eastern Carver County School District and surrounding areas! Students from throughout the southwestern metro come together in this one-day tournament to decide who is the best. The rivalry begins here!
Each participant will play SIX ROUNDS OF TOURNAMENT CHESS! Food and snacks are provided and are included in the fee. We will be serving pizza and snacks and provide beverages for all paid participants.
† Team Trophy: Schools must have at least 4 players from their school in order to compete. We take the best 4 scores from each school and combine them. 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 (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 category (k-1, 2-3, 4-5). 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. Some games may be timed. A tiebreaker playoff system will be introduced at the tournament.
