For kids who are interested in chess, have learned the fundamentals, and would like to take the next step, tournaments can be a great experience.  Youth chess tournaments can be a challenging and exciting way for kids to test their chess skills an improve. 

In 2017, I collaborated with Ben Johnson to run 3 scholastic tournaments.  Since then , I have taken a break from running tournaments, however this is something I may do again if there's sufficient interest.
