How do I change my username? (kid)

If you have a Guardian, you must ask your Parent or Coach and they can request the change from within their Parent account by going to their "My Kids" index card, the hamburger menu (3 horizontal lines) and then "Edit Kid":

Type in the requested username and click "Save":

You can also send a username request to by clicking on this link.

Here are the guidelines for custom usernames:

Usernames on ChessKid must be between 3 to 20 alphanumeric characters with no spaces or symbols other than - or _ and these symbols cannot be at the beginning or end of the username. Usernames must also be appropriate for young children, no adult themes or violence themes may be used. If your username is not approved, you will receive an email or message in your ChessKid Inbox.

All custom usernames must be approved by staff (this can take up to 24 weekday hours).
