We understand you may need to arrive to the tournament late or leave early. If your child needs to miss a round of the tournament, you may request one 1/2 point bye. This means your child will not be paired to play in that round, and will receive 1/2 point for the round. If your child needs to miss an additional round, they
may receive a zero-point bye (please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if this is the case).
BYES ARE NOT PERMITTED FOR PLAYERS IN FUTURE MASTERS & CLASSIC.

There are no refunds once registration is complete. If the participant is unable to attend the event for any reason, please notify us immediately. Provided that notification is given within 2 days of the start of the tournament, credit will be awarded towards a future Growing Minds Chess Academy tournament at Avenues: The World School. The credit must be used within the 2017-2018 school year.
If you would like to make a non-deductible donation to the Growing Minds chess scholarship fund, please check here and the amount will be added at checkout. This fund allows players who need financial assistance to attend travel tournaments such as Nationals, and helps underwrite the scholarships we offer at local tournaments.
Registration will be processed once payment has been received.
