ICA is proud to present our new Livingston Scholastic Swiss! This is a 3 round swiss system tournament, meaning that all players will play three rounds regardless of their results. All players in grades K-12 are welcome! We have sections for everyone from very young, very new players to serious, rated competitors. Note: all players should be familiar with how all of the pieces move as well as check and checkmate. Notation will be required for players in rated sections who are in 3rd grade and above.

All sections start at 10:00 AM sharp. Please try to arrive by 9:45 AM so we can get started on time.
