The best way to become a good player
Our Scholastic Chess Tournaments
A scholastic chess tournament is a competition in which young chess players like you indulge in
their favorite activity. The Chess’n Math Association, a leader in organizing scholastic chess
tournaments, has exciting tournaments for beginners to advanced players. If you know how to
checkmate, you are good enough to play in a tournament!
Why play in a tournament?
For practice
Practice your favorite activity with other chess enthusiasts like yourself.
To improve your game
It is recognized that practicing in a healthy competitive environment is the key to success in any
discipline. We suggest 10% theory and 90% practice. There are many players in a tournament
and playing against different players is important.
To receive a rating
A rating is a numerical evaluation of a player’s skill (see The Scholastic Rating). Higher is the
rating, better is the player. The rating increases or decreases depending on your performance in
rated tournaments. All tournaments run by the Chess’n Math Association are rated.
To learn good sportsmanship
The game of chess is a gentleman’s game. During a tournament we learn the rules of good
sportsmanship and fair play without even being aware of it!
