What should a 10-11 year old's rating be?

What should a 10-11 year old's rating be?  I really don't know.  I am in that category and have a very high 1400 standard but I don't play on that much.  I play more on my blitz ten min. games which my rating is 1000.Wink

heck, you're pretty sharp for your age. Keep at it and you might be a master by college. Sooner if you have any talent.

A person's age does not dicate the skills in chess. I personally know 10-11 year olds with 1800+ ratings in the USCF and Magnus Carlsen received his title very young.

Since you are 1400ish on chess.com, I would say your USCF rating would be around 1100-1350

I think you are better than most 11 year olds by the sound of it.

But age of itself does not mean much after 7 or so. What an 11 year lacks is experience normally. How long you have been playing, your basic talent, and the time you spend in studying is the main thing.

Bobby Fischer was a fearsome player by age 12. But he was horribly unbalanced in character, and never really grew up.

Concentrate on the school work, and use Chess as a means of exercising your mind is my advice.

I know two boys who are both 10 to 11 and are 2000+ USCF...

So I really don't know.

But study.You will get better.

My rating is 1450 and I'm 10 so I think you are about average. But there is a wide range of ratings for 10 and 11 year olds. From 0 to grandmaster rating.

1400 USCF for a 10 yr old is generally considered pretty good.  I think the average for that age is 1200.

I think this is overdoing conformity a little bit.

I should qualify that I think 1200 is average for 10yr olds based on observations at larger tournaments.  Most start playing at 8 (3rd grade), and if they stayed around til 10, then they've been playing for 2 yrs.

I'm with you so far.

rock303

I'd say about 1400.

give or take a few hundred

I'm 10 and my rating is 1900 here my real life rating is 1826 I think that's good enough.....

Somewhere between zero and 2500.

I don't think it is good enough FrostedBoy. Your Standard Rating is 1940 and your Blitz Rating is 840. What's going on there, FrostedBoy?  The Mods should look into that.

There is no set rating for an age group, or a certain age.  It all depends on when you learned, how long you have been playing, how much you study, how much you practice, desire, dedication, motivation, talent, etc.

Your rating on that age depends on what you want to reach and on how long you have been playing chess :). Personally I think a 1400 rating is pretty good on that age and you will have enough time to become a 2000+ player one day. But just try to enjoy the game and don't focus too much on your rating, improvement comes naturally :)

Frostedboy is such a freakin cheater in rapid lol. That's pretty normal for this site though.
