Grand Match Gala
What is the GMG? The Chess Tutors Grand Match Gala is an INVITATION-ONLY opportunity for students from our various schools to test and measure their developing skills in full-fledged tournament play. Students have an opportunity to participate in a healthy competition that fosters camaraderie, good sportsmanship and an opportunity to gain valuable life experience in a safe and intellectually stimulating environment. Trophy winners and checkmate circle competitors from all of our top performing schools are invited to “go head to head” in this exciting “Battle of the Minds” (round robin) chess competition.
$0 Entry Fee for Parents
ONLY students who have received an email and/or hard copy invitation to the tournament may register.

BY INVITATION ONLY!
Our Chess Tutors schools will exclusively compete to be recognized as our top Chess Tutors chess team. Additionally, individual 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards will be granted to winners in K-6th grade from our Chess Tutors program as well as individuals from other programs who compete and place. Students may compete within their grade section, one grade level above or below. In recognizing that Effort Creates Aptitude, we will award each child’s best effort by making sure every student receives an award of some kind.
Indeed, we anticipate distributing over 250 awards!
All College Scholarship Award information will be included in your post-registration information packet.
(PLEASE NOTE: We will be using the Round Robin by grade system to match students in individual play. Please, be mindful you may occasionally find yourself competing against someone from your own team).
