WHY: The icebreaker tournament is a FUN, SHORT AND SIMPLE three-round tournament opportunity to break the ice and show off the skills you’ve learned so far this season! When we say, “Break the ice,” we want to help you shed any fear or hesitation that you may have in playing a competitive game of chess with other local kids around your age and skillset. And most of all we want you to have fun doing it!
