Our competitive youth tournament club, Hampton Roads Scholastic Chess Club, does not run over the summer; however, in its place, we continue to meet on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00 PM at King’s Grant Presbyterian Church, 745 Little Neck Road in Virginia Beach, for a Summer Fun Youth Chess Club!
Cost is just $5 per week. You will register for the weeks you think you will make it, but at the end of the summer, you’ll be invoiced for the weeks you actually attended.
Summer is for fun, so all of our events are just that. Some will be rated, but nothing “regular” to worry about. You will even find some formats that don’t exist in the real chess world, to add to the fun! Here’s the lineup!

June 28th — Live Arena, G/15; d0
July 5th — Quick Quads, G/15; d3
July 12th — Knockout Swiss; G/10; d0 (only perfect scores continue — everyone else plays for fun in the back after being knocked out!)
