  2. Hello, I am a member of the Charter School of Wilmington Chess Team and I was wondering if there is any USCF rated scholastic tournaments coming up.

    1. I believe your question just posted late because I think you were at the Tri-State Scholastic Fall Open on November 15 th. The next scholastic tournament should be January 24 th, 2015. We will post the details add soon as they are available. We look forward to seeing you and your team there in January.

  3. Scholastic chess is in full swing. The Delaware Youth Chess Organization is starting the first USCF tournament of the year. Please see this blog to find out more and get your registration form in to

  4. Hello, I was wondering about the CCL quads if there is like a U2000, U1600, U1200 section or something because the details weren’t really that specific and right now I am unrated in USCF so what section would I get put in? Thanks.

    1. The CCCC Quads do not have specific sections. The players are put in groups of four based on their ratings; the best four play each other, then the next best four, etc.

      All players must have a USCF membership and we use that for ratings. In your case, we would use the provisional rating.

      Hope to see you there. It is a lot of fun.

    1. Hi Ms. Helm,

      Please check out the CLUBS page. That may help you some. In the meantime, I did forward your request onto Brandywine Chess Club.

      I hope in the future to have an extensive list of scholastic chess clubs.
