Scholastic State and National US Chess Championships of 2023

When is your child's state tournament? 

Here's a growing list of this year's (2023!) scholastic state and national championships. We will add more states as we get more information. Please reach out if you don't see information for your state, and we will get that for you. 
We will be running tournament prep classes again this year, which you will soon be able to sign up for here!

These classes are specifically intended for students who are preparing for their state tournament or nationals.  Focuses will include tactics, strategy, endgames, openings, and calculation.  For players with less tournament experience there will also be a focus on how tournaments work and how to take notation.

This class will be mostly lesson time, and the assumption is that students in this class are playing a fair amount other times in the week.  There may be take home assignments as well.
