Byes may be requested. We encourage all students to get as much tournament play as their
schedules permit. Tournament experience provides 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
