InfoBAC Elite Team
BayAreaChess' top team was formed in May 2015 by inviting some of the Bay Area's top scholastic players with the mission to provide them with a format of training where they can elevate their chess to the next level. We do this by offering Grandmaster training combined with a team oriented method of training and support that will give these young players a valuable experiene they can apply to both their chess and to their personal lives.
This is an by invitation only team for players with 1900+ rating.
