"First Tournament is free for Brevard County students".  

Back by popular demand! In an effort to encourage new players to participate in tournaments, Brevard County students who are unrated will not have to pay their first tournament fee (typically $20).

However, you will still need to buy a USCF membership at the USCF website. The USCF membership is good for one year.

All players must register by the Friday 7:00 PM before the tournament to play in the first round. Walk-ins will get a first round bye.


Let's play Chess

You know ChessKid.com? This is great training tool for your kids! 

Although some functions on the site are free, in order to watch the videos, play online tournaments and do more than 3 puzzles a day, you need a Gold membership, which is $50/year on the website.
Coach Chris can get you the membership for only $20/year.
If anyone is interested, please register and assign Guardianship to  (
chris@spacecoastchess.org) so he will activate their account and collect the fee.

and have fun!


Welcome back to another great chess season at Space Coast Scholastic Chess!

The 2017-2018 Space Coast Scholastic Chess season kicks off on Saturday, September 23, at Holy Trinity (Lower campus).

Please register your child to participate via the link on this website, and pay at the playing site. A current USCF membership is required to play.

We will continue to offer a sibling discount.

Trophies to the top 5 places and three teams in most sections. Medals to first time players.

Kristine Stone has arranged the tournament sites for the first three months, but we still need playing sites for 2018. Please contact her with ideas.
