Tournaments

The NSSCA holds numerous events throughout the year, from September to May. Our events are open to students from grades primary through twelve. In addition, players receive a Chess’n’Math national chess rating, which is a measure of chess playing ability. Ratings can be found on the Chess’n Math Website.

Check out the Events Calendar for more information!

Regular Chess Tournaments

Participants are divided into groups of similar age and skill. They usually play 5 games and the top 3 players in each group are awarded medals. Some of these tournaments are grouped into our Grand Prix system, which awards additional trophies and awards to top performing players of the season.

Maritime Team Championship

The Maritime Team Championship is a fun event where teams of 24 players from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island compete. The location of the event cycles between the three provinces.

Nova Scotia Chess Challenge and Canadian Chess Challenge

The Canadian Chess Challenge is a national event where each of the 10 provinces compete. The Nova Scotia Chess Challenge selects one player from each grade (1 to 12) to represent Nova Scotia at the Canadian Chess Challenge.

Nova Scotia School Team Provincials

The Nova Scotia School Team Provincials is an event where schools compete against each other with teams of four players. There are various sections that schools can compete in.
