Quads Overview:

A quad is a four-person round robin section in which all participants play each other once (three rounds). Our quads are open to all scholastic players in grades K-12, and each quad will be divided based on rating rather than grade. The advantage of quads is that players get the chance to compete against opponents with very similar USCF ratings. Since some players have been competing online during the pandemic, we will be using the higher of a player's USCF Regular and USCF Online Regular ratings for the purpose of diving players into groups. Depending on the exact number of registrations, the bottom section may have five, six, or seven players, in which case that section will be paired as a Swiss tournament.
