MCCL Varsity Team Cup Championship

Students at Discovery and Liberty Middle Schools and Bob Jones and James Clemens High Schools will be selected by their coaches to compete on four-person teams representing their schools in the annual MCCL Varsity Team Cup Championship which will occur during Queen's Quest.  This four-round team tournament will use a time control of 45 minutes with five-second delay, just like the State Scholastic chess championship. Because this event is sponsored by the Madison City Chess League at no charge to the competitors, all team members must be MCCL members in order to be registered for the event.  The MCCL Team Cup Championship is not a rated event.  MCCL will not submit a ratings report for the Team Cup portion of Queen's Quest.

Award:  Winning team will receive the MCCL Team Cup to display at their school for one year and will be recognized at the MCCL Annual Dinner.

Deadline for coaches to register teams:  Friday, Oct. 6, 2017 via email to mccl.director@gmail.com.
