  • 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.

    In conjunction of holding Ontario Girls U19 Chess Championship, we are also holding another tournament which is the CYCC qualifier for CYCC later in Quebec.

    This is for parents / players who intend to go to CYCC to be held later from July 1-5, 2018

    Please take note of the following features of this tournament :

    1. It will be over 5 rounds (except for U8 ) and regular/slow CFC rated instead of active rated.
    2. It will be also FIDE rated as well NOT just CFC/CMA rated.
    3. If you get 2.5 points out of 5, you qualify for CYCC.
    4. If you achieve top 3, there will be trophy and medals ( very nice ) for you. Certificates will also be presented as well.
    5. And if you are the winner in your section, you get to win a bursary of $ 120 to cover for your transportation cost provided there are 40 players in the tournament ( around 6-7 players in each section which should not be too hard to achieve).
    6. Registration has already begun and if you intend to play in CYCC, this is a good chance for you to improve your CFC/CMA and FIDE rating before CYCC and World Youth later in the year.

    With so many benefits in this tournament, don't miss out this opportunity. Not in every CYCC qualifier that you get to win $$$

    We try to organize a tournament as best as it can gets.

    Pre-registration coming up soon

    Stay tuned for more updates.

      Registration starts to trickle in.

      For players in Mississauga especially, this is a great chance for you to get FIDE rating after this tournament and also maybe win some $$$ to cover the cost to go to Quebec for the CYCC in July 1-5, 2018.

      It is a regular rated tournament not active rated tournament as most qualifier are active rated.

      We will be at the Mississauga Open to disburse out the flyers and if you have any questions, you can ask us directly or you can send an email to us.

      Check out the link below for more information. Pre-registration list will be up as soon as possible ( probably in a week's time )

        Finally, the registration starts to crank up and the figure is closing to 10 now.

        Please take note that this is the only CYCC qualifier in Mississauga at this point in time.

        It is a regular rated with the possibility of FIDE rated as well. Bonus - travelling bursary if you win your section.

        Ramp up your CFC and FIDE rating before the CYCC in Quebec later in July.

        Entry fee of only $ 60 for two days tournament ( regular rated ) is very affordable with a chance of recouping it back for your trip to Quebec.

        Early bird dateline Jan 15 before the price goes up. It is 3 weeks away. Don't procrastinate too much.

                Very healthy and competitive U-08, U-10 and U-12 sections. The preregistered list is available via EMC's weekly mailing.

                U-14 and U-16 players, we need you to register with the same vigour as the younger players. Remember, every time any of U-14, U-16 or U-18 has to be combined with others, there is one less transportation subsidy to win. :-( Come in great numbers and play for this stipend only among your own age. Register now!

                  We have a couple of U8 signed up last night.

                  We just need more of U14 to sign up and probably U16 and U18 as well. If you intend to go to CYCC, come and join us as you may win the transportation subsidy ( double your entry fee ). How nice it will be.

                  Dateline coming up soon. Don't hesitate any longer.

                    We have 30 players on board and still short of our target 40 players.

                    We have enough players in the U8, U10 and U12.

                    Still short of players in the U14, U16 and U18. Players in this section will most probably be combined.

                    2 days to go before the BEST price ends and add $ 15 after Jan 15th.

                    Remember, bursary of $ 120 up for the winners.
