Washington State Elementary Chess Championships will host an additional, non-qualification section called the I Love Chess Too section. This section allows for any player to participate in the events of the day. The I Love Chess Too sections feature the same 5-game schedule as the Grade Level Championship and awards for all participants!
At this time there are 3 sections open in the I Love Chess Too event: K-6, 9-12, and Adult U1500
The K-6 section will include all players from Grades K-6.
The 9-12 section is open to any player from grades 9-12.
The Adult U1500 is open to any player from grades K-12 and adults. The only requirement is that the player is rated under 1500 (please note that in the Adult U1500 section adults and kids may play against each other).
