One of the most effective ways to help students gain confidence, advance their knowledge, and learn critical life lessons is to introduce them to friendly competition. Competition is a fantastic way to prepare students for the challenges of life. Quads are an exciting way for students to kick off their weekend and a great opportunity for parents to get away for a few hours.
Quad competitions are a great place to make new friends and connect with other players at a similar level of skill. These weekly tournaments are one way in which we as a chess academy are working to foster a healthy, positive, and fun chess culture in and around our community.
Quad chess tournaments involve a group of four chess players of similar abilities playing individual games of chess against each of the other three players. Every player competes in a total of three games, and the player that wins the most games is named the overall winner. The set of four chess players is referred to as a Quad.
Chess4Life quad tournaments feature a Trophy Trade-In reward system. The winner of each quad earns our standard quad winner trophy. Once a player has won four quads they can trade in their trophies for a 4x Quad Winner Trophy. If a player can earn 3 of the 4x trophies, they can trade them in for the prestigious 12 Quad Winner Cup! The trophy reward system is a Chess4Life tradition that helps give our students a tremendous sense of accomplishment.
