Open to Texas Residents and school. Must be in K - 5/6 grades to play. Participants cannot play up, if you are a 6th grader in an Elementary School (no 7th grade) or a 6th grader in an intermediate school (no 7th grade) then you must play in this section. Home schooled 6th graders and private school 6th graders must play in middle school.  (Note that TCA has ruled that private school 6th graders in a K-6th private school may play in Elementary.  A good rule of thumb is that if you are in 6th grade and your school has a 7th grade, then you should play in Middle School. If you are in public school and in  6th grade and your school has no 7th grade, then you must play in one of the Elementary sections. K-3 graders may play in one of the primary sections or may play in one of the Elementary sections.)

Three Sections: Championship, J V and Novice. The  J V section is opened to players rated Under 800 in February Supplement. The novice is opened to players rated Under 500.
