* The CIS calendar is subject to change.

This year Chess-in-the-Schools has changed the format of the "Open Section" at select CIS tournaments (see individual fliers for more information on which events this change will impact).  The "Open Section" will now be three rounds and all games will be G/45. This change will not impact our special CIS "Team Tournaments."

Standard tournament schedule:

Check-in:  8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Round 1:  10:00 AM
Round 2:  11:15 AM
Round 3:  1:00 PM
Round 4:  2:15 PM
Award Ceremony:  3:30 PM

Open Section Schedule:

Check-in:  8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Round 1:  10:00 AM
Round 2:  11:45 AM
Round 3:  1:45 PM
Award Ceremony:  3:30 PM

All CIS tournaments give priority to CIS students. 

Note:  

All tournament entries are limited by the space a school can provide.  All CIS tournaments unless otherwise noted are only open to CIS schools and schools that have participated in a TTI workshop in the last year.

For events open to others, Non-CIS schools are limited to a maximum of 10 student entries per tournament with no more than 5 unrated students EL Unrated and 5 for JH-HS Unrated...

*Students who score 3 or more points in an unrated section must purchase a USCF membership and play in a rated section for all future CIS tournaments.
 
Registration:
Registrations are due the Tuesday before each event at 5:00 PM and must include each student's name, school, and section.  All students and schools can register through our on-line registration system.  Direct email registrations will no longer be accepted. 

On-line Registration Page. 

Entry Fee:

None


On-Site Entries + Round Times:
On-site entries must arrive by 9:00 am in order to play in the first round (on-site registration is not always available). On-site entries who arrive after 9:00 am will miss the first round and receive a half point bye.  All pre-registered players must check-in by 9:30 am.  The first round will begin at approximately 10:00 am.  Award ceremonies will begin at 3:15pm.  Some events do not have on-site registration.  Check website prior to each event.

CIS Tournament entries limited to a first-come first served basis based on the number of entries each site can handle.  Teams may be limited to a certain number of entries based on the organizer's discretion.  Priority will be given to students in CIS programs.  For more information, please contact Shaun M.
