There are several teams competing in the Portland Area League High School Team Chess Competition that are looking for 1-2 players to fill their roster. If you are a High School or Middle School chess player interested in trying team competition, and your school doesn’t have a team, let us know, and we will hook you up with a team!
How is Team Chess different? First of all, it’s a lot of fun! (Not that individual chess isn’t…) You play on a team of 5, your team’s 5 players against another school’s 5 players, in order of rating. If your team wins 3 or more of their 5 games, your team wins! Great camaraderie while improving your own game. Play once a week, at Lincoln High School, G60d5 from 4-6 PM from now until the end of February, culminating in a party of fun blitz games and a pizza party. NWSRS rated and participation counts as one OSCF qualifier!
Contact Ed Addis at firstname.lastname@example.org or April Lutz at email@example.com with your name, grade, school and NWSRS rating, if known, and we’ll place you on a team.
