Friday 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.

Questions & Answers


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.
