VCS Quads


Why do you encourage your children to participate in chess tournaments? 

Tournament participation is considered as part of the chess education. We strongly recommend players at all levels including beginners to practice their skills by attending chess tournament regularly. Chess uses universal rating system, and tournament pairing is based on players’ rating. For beginners, they might be concerned that they are losing rating points when they lose. This worry is understandable but unnecessary. Tournament is organized into different sections based on the range of ratings.  So within the section, there is no dramatic difference in the players’ rating. It is a comfortable zone for the players to practice what they learned and test their skills. More importantly, as in other sports activities, it is the process of participation rather than the result that is most essential for the development of the children’s characters.
