TOURNAPARTIES AND ONLINE TOURNEYS!
Saturday Tourneys are a free and exclusive benefit of enrollment in any of our 11 other TKS programs. Although all our online and in-person tournaments are 100% free/included for enrolled families, only enrolled students are allowed to participate.
Saturdays are a blast in The Knight School! On the first Saturday of each month, all enrolled TKS kids from across the nation convene at our private Lichess tourney at 3 pm CT and rumble to determine the best TKS player in the USA! The top three placers receive a rare TKS Yellow Shirt in the mail. The second Saturday is even wilder, competing in a tourney which highlights various zany derivatives of chess. On the third Saturday in December and May, a national Tournaparty occurs, in which grade-level tourneys are played, and the winners of each compete to earn the title of TKS national champion.
In most "The Knight School" cities, we also end the semester with a giant in-person tournament/party extravaganza, known as the "TournaParty." These super-fun events are a highlight of the year for the kids and another free-benefit of enrollment in most of our programs. Contact your City Coach for more location-specific details!
For team-competitions and challenge-matches, please refer to our "The Varsity" City-Wide Advanced Chess Program.
