Individual Ratings
How the ASCF Rating System Works

The ASCF uses the worldwide popular ELO rating system for its members, named after its creator, Arpad Elo. By playing in tournaments, players achieve a rating, which reflects a player's performance.

The rating of the opponent is a major component of the formula. When your child first obtains an ASCF membership, they will start as an unrated player. After his/her first tournament, your child will have a chess rating.

Every time your child plays in a new tournament, their rating will be updated. You may use our search function below to see your child's current chess rating.
