Welcome to the 2016-2017 qualifying season for the Maryland Sweet 16 2017 on 2017.03.04-05. Since 1995 this annual invitational tournament has featured 16 of the top K-12 Maryland players competing in a separate section of the UMBC Open at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. The MD-Sweet-16 tournament-announcement page contains all tournament details, including qualification rules & Varsity-Points scoring rules. The MD-Sweet-16 Champion will receive a MD-Sweet-16 UMBC Chess Scholarship, valued at $45,056. (There are 2 additional types of UMBC Chess Scholarships for which high-school seniors from any state are eligible.)
7 of the 9 originally scheduled MD-Sweet-16 Qualifiers in this qualifying season have been completed, but there will be no more Qualifiers. The standings are current through MCA Severn on 2016.12.03 & US Chess's March Supplement.
Even if the player did not compete in a Maryland-Sweet-16 Qualifier during the 2016-2017 qualifying season, a K-12 player who is rated 1600+ and is a MD resident (or a student at a school in MD), may qualify by rating for the MS16, if the player contacts MCA at firstname.lastname@example.org by 2017.02.16.
