    One of the top girl from Ottawa registered yesterday.

    Cheers for Girls Chess in Canada.

    The players will be able to see and watch how Canada top girl plays and I am pretty sure all her games will be on live board.....

    We had another 3 registrants yesterday and two of them are top girls from Seneca Hill Chess academy ( sponsored by Corinna Wan )

    Thank you for your support to Girls Chess in Canada, Corinna. We appreciate it very much.

    The top half of the 25 players at the moment looks pretty strong and we hope there will be good competition among them all.

    For those who have not registered yet. it is still not too late to register.

    Come out and support our cause.

    Cheers to Chess in Canada....

    I am overwhelmed with gratitude to Corinna Wan and two other sponsors, to Ontario chess clubs, coaches and parents. This Girls U-19 Championship has really become a community effort, a real festival of girls' chess.

    We have twenty-five (!) participants now [the latest list is in the EMC mailings] including two highly rated WFMs but the most wonderful thing is that more than half of all players are girls younger than eleven and rated lower than 1000. This is the future of Ontario chess and of Canadian chess in general. Those girls will get FIDE-rated games, will earn invaluable experience, will get a real shot at qualifying for the CYCC and winning their own special prize.

    Bravo to everyone in Ontario chess! GM Susan Polgar noticed your effort. Consider this video clip an endorsement and appreciation of your efforts.

    There is still a month left. Each and every bright and curious girl is warmly welcome to play in a friendly, safe, stress-free environment against girls only. Register now!

    Thanks to the generosity of the Ontario chess community, there are now twenty-five (25) paid registrations to this unique all-girls event. [The latest list with ages and ratings is in the EMC mailing.] It means that the prizes are fully funded. The winner will receive a transportation grant to attend the SPFGI in St. Louis, Missouri, in July 2018. There are trophies for the Top-3 players. As you know, EMC Canada has graciously established additional special prizes for girls born in 2009 or after! That's right, a beautiful trophy and two medals await the top-3 finishers who are younger than nine years old as of January 01, 2018. It is like having their own section, at the same time reaping all benefits of playing in a FIDE-rated event and learning from strong role models. Isn't it great?! In addition, every girl who passes the 50% threshold will receive a personalized Certificate of Qualification for the 2018 CYCC in a corresponding age group.

    GM Susan Polgar follows our joint efforts closely. This video clip, courtesy of Team Canada captain FA Andrei Botez, is her warm welcome to all Canadian girls who dare to try serious, classical, FIDE-rated chess.

    Register now! Parents and coaches, give your young charges a shot at two amazing events.

    Remember, there is an official thread for all things CYCC that leads to a Web site where qualified players can register at low introductory prices, as well as select accommodations.

    Come one, come all! Mississauga, Quebec City and Saint Louis are waiting for you!

    Quebec Girls' Championship / Susan Polgar Qualifier took place in a luxurious location at the Montreal Olympic Stadium to rave reviews from players and parents.
    http://www.chesscanada.info/forum/sh...8456#post28456
    Girls as young as eight years old thoroughly enjoyed friendly atmosphere, free snacks and gorgeous prizes. Quebec has joined Alberta as two provinces that already determined their official representatives to the Susan Polgar Foundation Girls' Invitational (SPFGI) in St-Louis this summer.

    It is Ontario's turn now! The Ontario Girls U-19 Championship / Susan Polgar Qualifier begins on February 24. This has already became the biggest-ever all-girls event in the history of Ontario. A championship title, a nomination as an official Ontario rep to the SPFGI, Top-3 prizes, CYCC qualification certificates, the prizes for three best girls born in 2009 or later are on the line that week-end. Don't miss this unique chance, register now! All the details are at:
