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. 

 

为什么要鼓励孩子参加象棋比赛? 

象棋比赛是象棋学习不可分割的一部分,选手们通过与同级和高级选手的比赛,能有效提高技艺。们强烈建议所有选手,包括刚入门的初学者,都定期参加象棋比赛。际象棋采用的是全球评分系统,即选手的评分全球承认。同时,象棋界评定选手也是按照分数来看。对于初学者,评分系统就成了双刃剑。选手们需要通过比赛赢分,又担心失去分数。其实这样的担心大可不必。首先,比赛都会分组,按照分数区域来划分选手配对。如此便能避免分数差异大的选手对弈。而分数相类似的选手,往往程度差异不大,是选手能力范围之内的较量。其次,象棋是个实操性活动。棋谱学习后,一定要通过对局才能真正掌握。参加比赛让选手实学习的机会。再次,众所周知,学生阶段的任何学习、活动,都是过程比结果更重要。孩子们通过各种体验才能历练自己,培养出坚韧、顽强的性格应对今后的人生

Questions & Answers

问题解

o   I am not VCS students, can I join?

All VCS tournaments are open for all players.

o   I don’t have ID or chess ratings.

For new players, we will pair you up as an unrated player. You will receive a new ID that can be used for future tournaments. Ratings will be updated within a week after the tournament is completed.

o   Are there any weekend tournaments beside quads?

We have few other monthly tournaments that can be found under “events” page. If you have no tournament experience, QUADS will be the better fit to start with.

Chess sets and clocks are provided

Chess Scorebook  

All players must bring their own scorebook. We would like to encourage our players to record their moves on the score sheets, which are specially designed for that purpose. Moreover, the advantage of having your own scorebook is to keep track of all your games so that you can do post-game analysis, which is a great way to learn and improve chess. Additionally, recording games is mandatory in most tournaments.  

 

象棋记录本 

学生们必须在上课和赛期间,带自己的记录本,学校将不再提供记录纸。我们鼓励学生记录下棋的步骤,这样能帮助复盘。有自己的记录本还能便于存留学习的轨迹,学生可以在事后分析过去的比赛这对于棋艺进步很有帮助。另外,在大多数比赛中,必须记录所下的步骤。
