How do I qualify to take part?
Participate in a regional youth chess championship (YCC) and achieve a score that meets a minimum threshold. A 50% score is typically the standard for moving on to provincial and/or national competition. If a qualifier is unavailable in your area, it is easy to run your own!
The Chess Federation of Canada’s Youth Coordinator, Patrick McDonald, explains:
I am happy to announce a new initiative to help encourage organizers such as yourself to organize more qualifiers to send Canadian youth to the Canadian Youth Chess Championships (CYCC).
We are trialing this year a new economical option for running your official qualifier: This new option will be just a $2 per registrant cost to be an official qualifier. As always, your qualifier needs to be registered as a qualifier with either me or the CFC office in advance of running it.
We would also like to announce your qualifier on the CFC website so a good advance notice of the event should be sent in to the office (and feel free to copy me in on it too).
So, the options open to you are as follows:
- the full package of goodies* (medals, organizer shirt, give-aways for participants), with $6 per participant ($200 min, $400 max).
- the economy model, $2 per player, no minimum or maximum
- in both cases, if the ratings submission is other than electronic, there is an additional charge of $1 per player.
