Join us for the First Chess Tournament at Phyllis E. Williams Elementary School!
CHESS can help your child (1) increase concentration, (2) encourage and promote pattern recognition and (3) enhance logical and deductive reasoning to solve problems.
Playing in a tournament allows your child to: (1) practice what s/he has learned in chess class, (2) learn time management, (3) learn some rules of a tournament and (4) win a medal or trophy.
DATE: Saturday, April 28, 2018
Timeline: 9:15 AM- Registration Opens (Arrival)
10:00 AM- Tournament Starts (Registration is closed)
12:00 PM- Closing Ceremony & Pizza Party
Here's how the tournament will work:
Each student will play three rounds that are 20 minutes each. Winners of each round are decided by checkmate. If players are not able to reach checkmate by the time limit, the winner is decided by the point value of the pieces.
There will be two tournament divisions: 1) beginners and 2) advanced. A first, second and third place trophy will be awarded in each division and all players will receive a participation medal.
Finally, we will enjoy a Pizza Party to cap off a fun afternoon!
