Tournaments

Why are tournaments important? Chess students can use and apply the knowledge and skills they’ve learned in class. Because each move is recorded students and instructors can later analyze their games. This allows instructors to see what skills have been mastered and what weaknesses still need to be developed. These friendly tournaments are the best way for novice players to get a taste of what chess tournaments are like and to be competitive.

An added bonus – they get to play the kids they KNOW from class which is much more fun than playing strangers online. 

 

Who can play?  ALL currently enrolled SJIC students (and their parents) are welcome to participate.  Students do not need to be enrolled in our chess programs.  Math and Coding students are also welcome to play.

 

What is the cost?  All tournaments are all FREE.
