The fourth CCF sponsored free scholastic chess tournament of the year will be held at Luther Burbank Elementary School. All K-8 students enjoy free participation.


In order to keep our tournaments free, we rely heavily on the help of volunteers to provide the best experience for all competitors. Please have your school sign up volunteers in advance by contacting tournaments@chicagolandchess.org.



All coaches and/or parents are asked to pre-register all of their players in advance of the tournament. Once you have registered your roster or child for a CCF tournament, the players will be in our system and will not need to be re-registered for each tournament. If you haven’t yet registered your players and for information on registering for this or any CCF tournament, please contact our Programs Manager, Matthew Kearney at tournaments@chicagolandchess.org. Once you have registered, please help us out with preparations by submitting an estimated count of attendees to Matthew by Thursday, AM
