The annual GCA sponsored K-8 State Championship event is open to public, private or home schooled teams that have qualified through the State Qualifier, or through qualifying competitions in other areas of Georgia.

Format: Game/25 minutes with a five second delay (G/25 d5) for all sections. Five-player ordered board format with Swiss System pairings will be used in all rounds in all sections except K-1 which will be a four-player ordered board format. In determining standings at the end of the tournament the primary factor will be the number of match wins.

Entry fee: $150 per invited team except for Pre-primary (K-1) which is $120. Fee must be paid online at registration.

Awards ceremony ASAP after completion of the last round.

Team Roster: For all sections except K-1, a school team consists of 5 to 7 full time students, although only 5 play in any one round. Pre-Primary (K-1) team consists of 4 to 6 full time students with 4 playing in each round. Players must be ranked on the registration form in order of playing strength. This ranking will remain constant throughout the entire tournament, and will strictly govern which board position the player is assigned in a given round.
