NOTE: Please review tournament entry fee refund policy and online tournament ratings regulations with your child before registering: 


** As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this tournament will be held online only.   

** This tournament is USCF Rated, which will impact your "ONLINE USCF Rating" not your current Regular Rating.  

** The Tournament Entry Fee is not refundable unless you inform us via email you cannot attend at least 24 hours before the start of the tournament.    

** To prevent cheating and encourage fair play, we randomly monitor players based on their game performance, our AI Enabled assistance and Tournament Director Game Review Insights.  

** If we suspect a player is using an online tool or outside help to aid in their game, we may ask them to share the screen on Zoom or enable their web-camera.

** Players found to be violating USCF rules by the TDs will have all rights suspended immediately and the tournament entry fee and/or prize money they may be winning will not be awarded/refunded.  The games of suspicious players will not be submitted for USCF rating, and we may report unethical play to the US Chess Federation.
