Saturday, February 16, 2019

Sections: Note that all sections have grade level and rating requirements. Players with more than 10 rated games are not eligible for the non-rated sections. Players in the rated sections must be registered with http://www.uschess.org before the tournament. CCA is also selling discounted USCF memberships to new members and to students whose membership has expired. Players who have won first place in a Nonrated Section for the 2018-2019 school year must play in a rated section.

In non-rated games, notation is not required and clocks are not required but may be used if both players agree. In rated games, notation is optional for grade K-3 players in U500/U900, but a player may lose the right to make claims requiring a score sheet; notation is required for all other rated players. Clocks will be used in all sections with games reaching the time limit. Rated players should bring their own clocks.
