$75.00 annual team fee to be paid by team sponsor. (No additional fees necessary to participate in the Second and Third Team Tournaments.)

Each chess club must have one sponsor present during the entire tournament.

Please bring chess sets, notation sheets and clocks. Concessions and chess equipment will be available for purchase on site.

To fill the time between registration and the start of the first round, group lessons will be taught by our CMSCA instructors. Parents will be able to view the tournament from a distance but will not be permitted into the tournament area unless they are a team captain.

This is a great tournament for beginners - no entry fees, no USCF membership required and low pressure! Just fun and a chance to practice what they learn at chess club. Don't have enough for a team? We can try to place you on a team that isn't full. We hope to see as many children there as possible!

To register your team for an upcoming Team Tournament, please download and print out the Registration Form and Quad Placement Form.

Please complete the forms and bring them, along with the annual fee, to the tournament.
