Tournament Rules and Other Information
  • This winter we've put together a great vacation brake package for kids who love chess!
  • NECS chess clinic is open from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm and you can pick and chose the number of days to sign up for. Register as few as 1 day, or sign up for the entire week.
  • Day Schedule will look like this:
  • 8:30 am to 9:00 am an early arrival
  • 9:00 am Beginning of structured class
  • 10:30 am Snack time
  • 11:00 am Blitz Tournament
  • 12:30 pm Parents pickup
  • Extended day is available until 4:00 pm for kids to work on STEM projects. Kids can chose from building games with Roblox and Scratch. Work with Lego WeDo kits, program robot cars, create and print 3D objects.
  • We only have 15 spots open per day, and since some days will fill up faster than others, you may not be able to get the days you want if you wait.

  • MACA provides tournament listing for all as a service to the chess community. For question, comments, or dispute regarding events that are not organized by MACA, please contact the tournament organizer directly.
  • Remember that each player is responsible for bringing and setting up their clock. Please refer to the Metrowest Chess Club Digital Clock Guide for instructions on how to set digital clocks.
  • MACA does not recommend but allows US Chess approved electronic scorekeeping devices. Please note that some national tournaments held by US Chess ban electronic scorekeeping, so be sure to know how to keep score without aid of electronics.
  • If online registration is enabled on this event, you can Join/Renew your USCF and MACA membership at the online registration page. If online registration is not available, you can join MACA (The Massachusetts Chess Association) at our Online Membership Form and USCF (United States Chess Federation) at USCF Membership Page.
