FAQs for Parents

Q. Is it free for my child to play?

A. Yes, we are no longer asking for a £1 contribution to help with CCC's running costs, thanks to Play Professors' generous sponsorship.

Q. How do children travel to and from the events?

A. It is your responsibility to get children to and from the events.

Q. Can I watch my child playing?

A. Afraid not. Parents must drop their children and leave, then collect them after the event has finished.

Q. What if I drop my child off late?

A. If you arrive after the games have started, your child's game will have been forfeited. However, they will be able to play in the other matches as each child plays multiple games per event.

Q. What if my child is a beginner?

A. The Swiss format that we use to pair teams ensures that children are playing other children of a similar ability.

Q. Can I be horribly rude to the Adjudicators?

A. No! They are volunteers giving up their spare time so that your child can play in a chess league for free. Please be polite and courteous and please comply with their requests. Remember that they are people with feelings, just like you.
