Scholastic Chess

Scholastic events are hosted for Kindergarten through 12th Grade students enrolled in public, private, home-based, and independent study schools.  Tournaments range from beginner to statewide championships and allow students to compete as individuals and/or as members of a school team.  Scholastic tournaments may be rated (USCF membership required, to join) or unrated, and players compete for trophies, stipends and individual or school rankings.  Tournaments are typically one full weekend day, although some beginner tournaments may take place in a single afternoon, while experienced players may compete in multi-day scholastic tournaments.
