About NSCF Tournaments
This year NSCF will produce 16 tournaments in Westchester County, NY and in Greenwich, CT. NSCF scholastic tournaments are open to all students (K-12). In addition to prizes for each tournament, these events also earn Grand Prix points which reward highly active and high-scoring tournament players for their performance over multiple events. Grand Prix points are tabulated after the last tournament of the school year with awards presented early in the following school year. For more information, see "What do I need to know about the Grand Prix?" near the bottom of our FAQ page.
All of our tournaments are USCF-rated. A current USCF membership is required. If your child is joining the US Chess Federation for first time or has an expired membership, we have made arrangements for a special one-year membership discount. You can purchase this when you register for an event. (On the first page of our registration form, there is a link that says Click here to join during the registration process.)
In addition, NSCF administers 7 tournaments for Hunter College Campus Schools, in Manhattan.
You can register for all of our tournaments by clicking the links within the Tournaments & Classes listing.
Many NSCF students also participate in New York State and USCF National Scholastic Tournaments. Some of these are included in our Tournaments listing, but we do not handle the registration.
Please remember the following:
(1) Your registration is not confirmed until you receive a confirming email.
(2) Please bring a copy of the confirming email to the tournament or class in case there is a question.
(3) Tournament players, please check your section start time, plan to arrive 20 minutes prior to the scheduled start time, and check the pre-registration list to make sure your name is on it.
