Club Tournaments

Put new skills to the test through friendly competition with other students
Tournament Schedule

Our tournaments are a low-stakes, high-fun, competitive chess format that play an important role and marker in the growth of our students’ chess education. It’s a great way to offer them a place to practice and reinforce what they’re learning in class with other kids their age and skill level. It also helps navigate winning and losing, social skills, emotional intelligence, self-regulation, and executive function – a focus on “practice makes progress.”

What Happens During a Tournament?

  • Play three rounds of games
  • Walk through the fundamentals of a tournament
  • Snack break and history story/strategy on our featured chess piece
  • Medal awards ceremony for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place!
  • After completing all three rounds, every student gets to take home a golden chess piece for their collection!
