There will be 4 players in the team.
The teams will be entered into special Clubs on ChessKid in groups of 8. So, as teams are registered, they will fill up the special Clubs we will create eg: Primary B1, then Primary B2 etc
As teams are registered for the event, special logins will be created for them to use for the matches and they will play 2 matches using the 15 mins/each player per game.
So if Linden Park wants to enter 5 teams for example, they simply need to send the following info:
Prim B Linden Park Red Board 1 John Jones
Prim B Linden Park Red Board 2 John Smith
Prim B Linden Park Red Board 3 Mary Jones
Prim B Linden Park Red Board 4 Adele Lee
Prim C Linden Park Green Board 1 Derek Lee
We will create 4 or 5 chesskid accounts for each team using a system such as LP-B-Red-1, LP-B-Red-2 etc and advise the school that John Jones for example has the login LP-B-Red-1. So each student will have assigned to them a special sign-in for Chesskid when they come to play their match.
When the matches start, there will be a post telling the teams who they have to play, and so, for example:
Primary B1 Competition Round 1
Linden Park Red vs Mitcham PS Koalas
LP-B-Red1 vs MP-B-Koalas1
LP-B-Red2 vs MP-B-Koalas2
LP-B-Red3 vs MP-B-Koalas3
LP-B-Red4 vs MP-B-Koalas4
Pulteney Blue vs Parkside PS
To play the game, they simply go to <Play a Kid>, find the opponent’s name in their club and start the game. LP-B-Red1 might have to play MP-B-Koalas1 (ie the Board 1 players for Linden Park will be playing the board 1 from Mitcham Primary’s Koala team. And they will play 2 games, one with white and one with black. When they finish the first game, they simply re-match and they will play with the opposite colour.
And to make it all go smoothly, we will have a special Zoom Meeting running whenever the competitions are on – it’s details are:
