Should your child compete in chess tournaments

SHOULD YOUR CHILD COMPETE

IN CHESS TOURNAMENTS?

Chess tournaments have gained popularity with kids who are eager to show off the skills they have

been learning during practice. However, it is natural to be concerned as a parent about exposing your

kid to the pressure of competition. While chess can get intense, tournaments designed for kids are

planned to be enjoyable events that build confidence among players of all ages and abilities.

BENEFITS OF COMPETING IN CHESS TOURNAMENTS

Unlike many other sports, chess tournaments are typically played in rounds. This means that a child

may lose one round and go on to win another. At the end of the event, points are tallied up for each

round to declare the final winners. This process teaches kids to recover from losses quickly because

victory is waiting just around the corner. Kids also benefit from being in a friendly environment that

welcomes everyone from advanced players to beginners.

ASK THEIR COACH ABOUT READINESS

For many kids, summer camp is the place they first learn to play chess since it gives them the time

they need to practice. To assess your child’s ability to benefit from playing in a tournament, talk to

their coach about their level of skills. Most likely, you will find that as long as your child understands

the basic rules of the game, their coach will encourage competitive play. This is because playing with

new people will strengthen the skills they are learning in chess class.

PREPARE YOUR CHILD FOR THEIR FIRST COMPETITION

Most basic level chess tournaments for kids are single day events but your child should be prepared to

play for most of the day. Make sure he or she gets plenty of rest the night before the competition and

talk to them about how they will play in rounds. Competitors are also usually matched to players of

the same level of ability so build your child’s confidence by letting them know they will be playing

with their peers.

The thrill of playing in their first chess tournament is one feeling that your child will never forget.

Whether they win or lose, kids will learn powerful lessons regarding the game of chess and good

sportsmanship. After talking to their coach, go ahead and sign them up for the next chess tournament,

and get ready to watch their skills take off.
