Tournament Director Training Classes
NBCC is looking for more tournament directors. Becoming a TD is a great way to learn more about the rules of chess and help out the club with a much-needed service. Classes are conducted under the aegis of experienced tournament directors who helps clarify the more arcane chess rules.
Each student studies and presents one or more topics to the class.
1. Rules of chess
2. Swiss system pairings and procedures
3. Round-robin tournament
4. Prize allocation
5. Time controls and clock usage
6. Players rights and responsibilities
The club has purchased USCF Official Rules of Chess books. The cost is $20.00 for which you will be reimbursed after you direct a tournament. Contact the club if you are interested in participating. We typically have 2 sessions, after which you become a Club TD. Typically you would start to assist an experienced TD while you learn the “SwissSys” pairing software, and gradually take on more responsibility.
