Sunday 5 March 2017 - Autumn Allegro. Details can be found here
Applications are now open for the Junior Elite Training Squad for 2017. JETS is a squad made up of talented and enthusiastic junior chess players from around Australia. The main feature of JETS is a 5 day training camp where players get coached by some of Australia's top coaches for the first three days. They then participate in a training tournament and finally get to play in a simultaneous exhibition against one of the coaches.
This year the JETS camp will be held in Canberra from 3-7 July, though the venue is not yet confirmed. 30 players will be selected in total, with at least 1/3 being female places. Most of the applicants that are selected are under 14, but older players have gotten in in the past. For the first time the JETS organisers have decided that 6 spots in the squad would be reserved for the hosting state or territory, which in this case is Canberra! This is a fantastic opportunity to improve your chess with some of Australia's best, whilst having a lot of fun and meeting new juniors.
To be eligible to apply for the squad, you must have played the 2017 Australian Open, 2017 Australian Juniors or 2017 Oceania Zonal. If you wish to apply please go to the Australian Junior Chess League website: australianjuniorchess.org.au. Applications for the squad close on Monday February 20. Please contact the Selections Coordinator Alana Chibnall using this link if you have any questions.
