Tournaments
 
Tournaments are one of the many items  the chess club trains for - there is a tournament almost every weekend throughout the school year and there are others through the summer.

 

Typically we select two or three tournaments to attend as a club for preparation for our Superbowl, the Colorado State Scholastic Chess Championship, which takes place in February.

 

The tournaments prior to the "State" provide a means to get the players used to the environment and the mechanics of tournament play.

 

This is why we enforce "Touch Move", "Touch Take", time controls and recording so when the players are at a tournament they  will be playing the game they know by the rules they understand.
