    Default Mississauga, ON, qualifier for the CYCC - Feb 24-25, 2018

    The annual Canadian Youth Chess Championship (CYCC) is the most prestigious youth chess competition in Canada organized under the auspices of the Chess Federation of Canada (CFC). It is also a pathway to all international youth chess competitions that determines official representatives for the World Youth Chess Championship (WYCC), the Pan American Youth Chess Championship and the North American Youth Chess Championship. In 2018, the CYCC will be held in Quebec City, which gives an excellent opportunity to young players from the Greater Toronto Area to take part. To earn the right to play in the CYCC, one has to qualify in his or her province of residence. To qualify for the CYCC, 50% score is required, as per the national rules.

    Elevate My Chess Canada is proud to announce a new event that is the best chance for children residing in GTA to qualify for the CYCC and position themselves for success. This is a FIDE-rated tournament of Standard (“slow”) chess; the juniors will be able to boost their FIDE and CFC ratings ahead of the CYCC and international competitions.

    The qualifier will be held in Mississauga, ON, on February 24-25, 2018 – in the same venue and on the same schedule as the 2018 Ontario Girls U-19 Championship

    Thus, it is an ideal solution for families who have children of both genders: while your daughter plays in a secure, welcoming, girls-only environment for the provincial crown, a ticket to the SPFGI and a CYCC qualification, your son will play against kids his own age in a parallel tournament. This is the first arrangement of its kind in Ontario, and we are proud to bring it to you.
