About Cincinnati Scholastic Chess

Since 2007 Cincinnati Scholastic Chess (CSC) has been organizing chess tournaments in the greater Cincinnati area for scholastic players (grades K through 12). The annual CSC Series offers one tournament per month from October through March. Trophy and medal winners from past Series are posted on our Archive page.

Since 2012 CSC has organized the Cincinnati Open, an annual weekend tournament for players of all ages, which is usually played in April. Final results from past Cincinnati Opens are posted on our Archive page.
