We encourage all students to get as much tournament play as their
schedules permit. Tournament experience provides a focus that is taken back to weekly chess clubs. Rules of chess, sportsmanship, camaraderie, and team building are also benefits learned while attending tournaments.
The educational benefits of chess are directly proportional to the quality of study and the number of games played in serious competition.
Three points (in one regional tournament) are required to qualify for the WA State Elementary Championship Tournament, April 29, 2023 in Tacoma, WA
