This event will be a great learning experience for young chess players from the Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, Mexico and USA. For most it will be their first taste of international competition and an opportunity to form friendships. Additionally, this tournament will provide the opportunity to compete in a FIDE event, which will award FIDE titles and FIDE ratings.

Learning and practicing chess encourages a life time of fair play and it's a great way to build good thinking skills, which are crucial for a successful and happy future.

The U.S. Chess Federation will be using the April rating supplement to determine the official US Players for this event.
