Saturday June 1 is the Deadline for TD SafeSport Training!



Effective June 1, 2024, all US Chess-certified Tournament Directors (TDs) must have completed the authorized core training from the U.S. Center for SafeSport in order to become or remain certified by US Chess.

Having a non-certified TD for any reason, including lapsed membership, lapsed TD certification, or no current SafeSport certification, will cause an event to fail validation. Events cannot be rated until the event passes validation.

Instructions on how to register for and take the SafeSport training can be found here.
