    BAC 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.
    Do you think you'd be a good fit to this team, and would like us to consider you?
    Please, email us why you should be considered and what value you think you bing to the BAC Team. All submissions will be considered.

    Q: What is expected from the Team members?
    A: Consistent attendance and team commitment. Also recommended to spend anywhere between 2-25hr/week on chess at home.

    Q: What software or other tools are required for the team members?
    A: For the Elite and A-team members, Chess base (click here) is required software. For the Intermediate and Beginner team members, there is no required tool at this point.
