About Evanston Scholastic Chess
Evanston Scholastic Chess is a group of parents and volunteers who lead and organize school chess clubs in Evanston. We serve students in grades K-8 who either live in Evanston or attend an Evanston school.
Here's what we typically do:
- Conduct four K-8 chess tournaments a year between the months of November and April. At our tournaments, children compete in age- and ability-based groups. These events are ideal for young Evanston chess players who want to try out the tournament experience. The tournaments are not USCF rated.
- Host an email list that Evanston Chess leaders, volunteers and parents can use to share resources, plans and best practices.
