Are you up to the challenge? It’s time to up your endgame. Every Saturday and Sunday over the summer, on PA days and during school breaks, Extra Ed holds online charity fundraiser chess tournaments for all skill levels and aspirations. It’s a wild time with a focus on competitiveness and fairness.

All Tournaments are 1.5 hours long, and each player will play six 10-minute games. They’ll get an official rating from the Chess Federation of Canada, Canada’s official chess ratings agency, and can get optional top board game analysis from one of our Chess pros to help rank up.

All proceeds from Extra Ed Chess Tournaments go to the Jacques Katz Memorial Scholarship Fund, ensuring all kids in need have equal access to an extraordinary education.
