LJC Team Day event
An inter-school Chess competition for schools in the Lothian region. Compete in the “P5 and U” section or the P6/7 Section for Primary Schools. Secondary schools have their own section.
Teams are ideally 4 players, but teams of 5 or more are ok too. Less than 3 players? Get in touch and we'll do our best to put you together in a composite team.
Teams in each section are paired using the Swiss system which matches teams in each round based on the points already scored. This has the advantage of allowing teams to float up and down the draw until they find their own level and helps avoids significant mismatches between the stonger and weaker teams.
New teams are most welcome as this is a great way for players to dip their toes into competion chess. Many may feel that they will not be good enough but this is never true as most teams will include new and inxperienced players
Please note that Team Day events are open for Schools in the Lothian region only. Kindly contact one of the support members if you wish to determine if your school qualifies.
