Congrats! You have been selected by your coach to participate in tournaments. What's next? See process listed below.
What Does This Mean?
CCCSA coaches are advised to notify parents when they believe a student is excelling in class. The Golden Ticket is a way for our coaches to both reward students and notify parents that the student is successfully grasping concepts being taught in class.
Tournament play of course! Don't be alarmed by how serious it sounds. There are tournaments for all levels of play. The CCCSA has designed a tournament system to take students with no tournament experience and guide them into rated play.
How Do I Know If My Child is Ready for Rated Play?
Try a few Unrated Practice Tournaments first. If the student has a perfect 3-0 performance, moving to rated play would be a good option.
Why Tournament Play?
Did you know that students who play in rated tournaments could see an increase in test scores of 30-50% in math and 10-20% in reading?
