Middle School Chess League Forming 2012-13 Season

All Whatcom County middle schools, junior highs, and private schools that encompass 6th through 8th graders are invited to join the 2012-13 season of the Whatcom Chess League, a WHSCA rated league.

The WCL uses the same tournament rules as the high school league, with a few differences. Teams will consist of four players instead of five. (That way they can all fit into one car!) The matches take place concurrently with the final high school league meet.

To participating schools we encourage a two-fold emphasis. First, an emphasis on learning: the rules of the game, chess notation, good sportsmanship, basic strategy, logical thinking. Then, an emphasis on fun: enjoying the game and the inter-school competition as a team, in a supportive environment.

January 14, 2013: Whatcom Chess League -- Ferndale H.S. cafeteria

Pre-registration is required to participate, so contact WCL league director Randy Kaech at kaech@frontier.com for the most current specifics and WCL entry information.
