Dear Coaches,

Our special thanks to you all for the cooperation and the wonderful coaching to our young chess masters. We are confident that this will encourage their academic growth through the game of chess.

For the upcoming tournaments, please ask the players to be present at the usual check-in time at our tournament hall (Bartow Civic Center). We will plan to start the announcements by 8:15 am so that we can start the games faster. Like previous years, unless we have emergencies like the hurricane, we will have four (4) games as usual. We have tentatively planned to complete the tournament day by tentatively 3:30 pm, but will keep you updated via our twitter feed.

: Playing chess is not an outcome, but a tool toward a higher, academic goal. Neither the game nor the competition should ever become more important than the development of a student’s self-esteem. Efforts toward winning at the abuse of a student by a coach or parent will not be tolerated! Such “abuse” would include such things as belittling a student, negative criticism of a student who has lost, encouraging cheating to win, etc.
