We have 8 sections. Each section has its own age, grade, and rating requirements. Championship sections are open to all who meet age and grade limits; unrated players welcome in all sections.
Read the schedules below carefully. Some sections will be played on Saturday, Jan 9 OR Sunday, Jan 10 only. Other sections will be played over both days.
Playing in two one-day sections is allowed if you meet the age, grade, and rating requirements for both sections.
Entry fees all sections: $100 after 6 pm EST 1/7/21

Plaques to the Top 2 Unrated players in each One-Day Section
Players can win trophy, plaque, and medal.
All players scoring 4 or more (5 or more in 2-Day sections) who don't win a trophy or plaque receive a medal! Playoff for 5-0 or 6-0 (after fair-play review is completed), may be fast game.
Plaques to the Top 4 teams in each section.
The top three scorers from the same school in a section count as a team (minimum of 2 players needed for team). All players on a team must attend the same school: no combined teams are allowed, even if one school “feeds” another.
Awards may be delivered first to schools or to coaches. Winners outside of NY, NJ or CT are responsible for shipping costs.
Once the Fair Play Review of the tournament games has been completed, prizes which have already been distributed will not be re-distributed.
