HOW TO QUALIFY

To participate at the Quebec Chess Challenge (Provincial Scholastic Chess Championship by grade), you must be qualified. The Top 10 by grade on December 1st, 2019 are automatically qualified as well as all Quebec young players in Kindergarten (click below at the "List of Qualified players" to see if your name is on it). All the others have to qualify in a Qualifier Tournament. 

It's easier than you think to qualify. You just have to participate in one or more of the qualifier tournaments (listed below) and finish among the finalists. You will then receive an invitation to play at the Quebec Chess Challenge 2020 which will be held on April 19th. Don't forget, if you don't qualify at the first qualifier tournament, participate at the next, and the next ... and you will eventually qualify!!

Playing at the Quebec Chess Challenge is a fantastic experience that you will never forget. I wish you can be part of it! Good luck to everyone.
