Schedule for the 2020-2021 School Year

The Right Move Chess Foundation, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation which serves scholastic chess players in  New York City and the Greater Capital District of Albany, New York by providing a series of free chess tournaments during the school year.   

For information about our tournaments click here, and for tournament rules click here.

In light of the COVID pandemic we have not decided on our schedule or tournament format for the 2020 – 2021 school year.

We do plan on hosting on-line tournaments in the fall and will re-evaluate our ability to offer over-the-board tournaments as the pandemic resolves.
