    BAC Teams

    BayAreaChess' teams have started in August 2015 by inviting some of the Bay Area's most dedicated scholastic players with the mission to provide them with a format of training where they can elevate their chess to the next level. We do this by offering strong training with title player coaches combined with a team oriented method of training and support that will give these young players a valuable experience they can apply to both their chess and to their personal lives.

    This is a team for players with 1000+ rating.
    Do you think you'd be a good fit to this team, and would like us to consider you?
    Please, email us why you should be considered and what value you think you bring to the BAC Team. All submissions will be considered.
