2021 Iowa Individual Grades Championship

The tournament involves competition against opponents only from the same grade. (If there are less than 4 players in the same grade, some grades may be grouped for pairing purposes only). There are four rounds of play. Grades K-2 will have 30 minutes for all their moves per game while grades 3-12 will have 45 minute limits for games. The players will be matched using the Swiss System to minimize the number of players who win (or lose) all their games.
