2021 US Chess All-America Chess Team Selected

(Crossville, TN) US Chess is pleased to announce the 2021 All-America Chess Team, one of the highest national honors attainable by a young chess player. The All-America team was created in 1987 to honor the very best players ages 18 and under, selecting players on the basis of age, rating and chess activity during that year, similar to the selection process of "all-conference" teams in other sports.

This year's candidates were selected based on their age as of January 1, 2020 and their peak post-tournament rating from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. Since this award is a "post-season" selection, the minimum rating limits in each age group are reviewed annually by US Chess staff and the US Chess Scholastic Council.

US Chess wishes to congratulate each of the 43 members of the 2021 All-America Chess Team for receiving this prestigious award. Each of the team members will receive team jackets and plaques by mail.
