Most Tournaments have Adult and Scholastic sections or an Open section for adults and high rated students.
A few of the larger Scholastic tournaments do NOT have Adult sections (see notes above), but please volunteer to help if you can.
Our scholastic chess players are some of the best in the state due to the dedication of the chess coaches, parents, and volunteers.

Our USCF Affiliate name is the "Northern Arizona Chess Center" - All tournaments are USCF rated, but we also run an unrated section in the fall tournaments for first time scholastic players to experience the fun of a tournament before committing to membership.

Past Events:

Northern Arizona Chess Association (2011 and earlier) - CROSSTABLES
