Last camp we ran our first USCF rated event and we would like to continue encouraging the kids to play rated events. This carries over to the Rochester Chess Club tournaments on Tuesday nights as well as any rated tournaments across the country. If the students plan to play in the state scholastic championship they will also need a USCF membership.

If your student doesn’t have a USCF membership and would like to sign-up, please visit . We can also help you sign up in person. For those of you that have USCF ratings, you can check them at .
