2014-15 Tournament Manual
Welcome to Polk Scholastic Chess and the tournament year 2014-15!
We are a nonprofit organization offering an extracurricular activity open to all students of Polk County, Florida enrolled in Pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, including home-schooled students. We exist to encourage academic growth through the game of chess.
We believe the game of chess is an exciting way to teach critical thinking skills, sequencing, sportsmanship, self-control, and other skills. We have seen the progress and academic improvement of students who play chess. Chess is for everyone - even if your student is not a high achiever or has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder!
With participation from almost all the schools in Polk County and over 600 participants every year, PSC stands as one of the largest “not for profit” chess tournament organizers in the State of Florida.
We offer a tournament setting allowing the students to be challenged and as competitive as they want to be - yet they are not penalized due to their level of ability.
We work with schools throughout Polk County (Florida) to help start and continue school-based Chess Clubs.
Online student registrations only! Fees: $35.
Last date for online registration: September 27, 2014
Polk Scholastic Chess is a non profit, 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to encouraging academic growth through the game of chess.
