Event description

Description

A chess tournament for youngsters who wish to compete in the game of Kings & Queens. The American Open Scholastic Tournament provides junior talents to compete in more than 20 different sections. This tournament accommodates all levels from beginner to advance, and grades Kindergarten to 12th grade. Three skill level divisions - Booster, Junior Varsity, and Varsity - are available for students to join.

  1. Booster is a non-rated tournament play where players are grouped by grade levels, and play each other within that group. While the Junior Varsity (JV) and Varsity divisions are grouped with consideration of the player's grade AND USCF (US Chess Federation) rating. The Booster division will only play on Saturday.
  2. Junior Varsity (JV) consists of sections for players in K -12th grade rated UNDER 1200. This section plays only on Sunday.
  3. Varsity is the advance division and is open to students at any rating. Players have to play two days: Saturday and Sunday.
