The Fremont Scholastic Chess Championship is a Swiss style tournament (a non-eliminating tournament format which features a set number of rounds of competition, each competitor does not play every other. Competitors play opponents with a similar running score, but not the same opponent more than once.) All participants will be broken into age appropriate sections (Kindergarten (G/30), grades 1-4 (G/30) & grades 5-12 Section (G/60) and the winner is the competitor with the highest aggregate points earned after five rounds. Impressive trophies will be awarded to the top 10 in each section, top school team per section, and the top boy & girl in each grade. All other players will receive medals for participating. 

I strongly encourage any and all scholastic players in Fremont and its neighboring cities to come and join the tournament. It’s not only competitive and fun, but it’s a place where players can meet new people, make new friends, and gain a lot of experience.

For all those interested in attending, kindly visit FremontChess.com. Because of generous donations from longtime chess coach Joe Lonsdale and Learning Bee Director Grace Wong, the entry fee is only $20! As usual, please make sure that your child has a current United States Chess Federation membership . For ease of processing, you can join or renew your child’s USCF membership on the tournament application. 

I hope to see you all on March 16th and 17th at the spacious Learning Bee Learning Center which is located at 

39977 Mission Blvd, Fremont, CA 94539

Sincerely,

Chris Torres

The winter program kicks off on December 15th with the FremontChess.com Chess Quads.

Both camps will have their own unique lessons and tournaments so students can attend both programs without any repeating material. The tuition for each camp is $150 and a child can both session for $250. All children who attend at least three days will receive an award and a certificate on their final day of camp.

The longest running Saturday chess class in Fremont reconvenes on January 5th.
