The 2021 National Online Scholastic Championships

US Chess announces the 2021 National Online Scholastic Championships (NOSC).  This event is intended as the online replacement for the now-cancelled SuperNationals VII.

The NOSC will feature two Qualification Weekends, with a total of six divisions, and a Championship Weekend, with top finishers from each section meeting to determine a national individual champion in that division.  There will be team and individual prizes awarded in each section on the Qualification Weekends; however, the only official national championship titles will be awarded to individuals on Championship Weekend.

The Qualification Weekends are OPEN FOR ENTRIES!   Just click on the link below that is appropriate to the division you wish to enter.  There is a "Register Online" link in the left-hand menu on each site.  Directly below that is an "Advance Entries" link.  You can check that link immediately after entering.  If your entry appears on there, then you're all set!

Qualification Weekend 1:  April 24-25, 2021

  • K-12 and K-9 Divisions

Qualification Weekend 2:  May 8-9, 2021

  • K-6, K-5, K-3, and K-1 Divisions

Championship Weekend:  June 12-13, 2021

  • Top finishers from each Division (total number in each Division depends on the number of original entries)

All three weekends of the NOSC will be held in partnership with the Internet Chess Club (ICC).  Here is a link to the NOSC rules.  (Please note: the Championship Weekend rules will be added to this document later.)

Please send email to with any questions.

What would be the cost and/or requirements for players. I am running a newly formed Chess team in Frontenac Kansas. Most players are not USCF but some have a number that they haven't used due to our State Tournament being cancelled last year.
