Let's encourage more girls to play chess:
The Her Move Next Friday night matches are designed to inspire girls on all skill levels, from beginners to advanced players in an atmosphere that promotes camaraderie and mutual support. The Chess Quad+ format allows girls a regular opportunity to be part of an exciting and larger chess-girl community. High school chess-girl mentors will be onsite coaching and sharing their experiences and insights.
Coaches will organize players in Quad+ sections seated into four all-girls teams with comparable rankings. Players will not only be competing against girls of similar ratings, but also each participant will have an opportunity to contribute to their respective chess teams, for a team award! Chess teams are a proven fun format that energizes participation and forges friendships.
Event details: Please join us Friday, November 30th, 2018 at 5:00 PM for 3 rounds of USCF* dual rated games in 25 minute 5 second time controls in quad sections arranged in our unique 4-team section format. These series of matches will be scheduled bi-monthly starting November 30th and initially hosted at PS 33 Chelsea Prep located at 281 9th Ave (adjacent to 26th Street), New York, NY 10001. All-Girls Quad+ Friday Night Tournaments administered by ICN.
