You are trying to qualify for..........
THE ENGLISH CHESS CHALLENGE SEMI-FINALS
(ECC)
This is tournament was set up in 2001 to provide a tournament of its own type where ALL of CCF's trainees (plus others who wish to enter) can take part with a properly accountable structure and where no legitimate qualifiers would be excluded from semi-finals and finals they had qualified for.  Click the above link to go to the English Chess Challenge home page.

In most cases, pupils will qualify through a competition held in their school during the Spring Term.  In addition, the CCF Junior Club runs a qualification event and these 2 open events are there for those at other schools who want the chance to qualify plus anyone that wants a 2nd or 3rd chance.  Anyone qualifying twice provides another entry for others (usually players from their own school).

The finals are in age groups with boys and girls split:

UNDER 18 BOYS........UNDER 18 GIRLS            (Years 11-13)
UNDER 15 BOYS........UNDER 15 GIRLS            (Years 9-10)
UNDER 13 BOYS........UNDER 13 GIRLS            (Years 7-8)
UNDER 11 BOYS........UNDER 11 GIRLS            (Year 6)
UNDER 10 BOYS........UNDER 10 GIRLS            (Year 5)
UNDER 09 BOYS........UNDER 09 GIRLS            (Year 4)
UNDER 08 BOYS........UNDER 08 GIRLS            (Year 3)
UNDER 07 BOYS........UNDER 07 GIRLS            (Year 2)
UNDER 06 BOYS........UNDER 06 GIRLS            (Year 1 & below)

* School years are listed as a guide.  Those who are not in the year their date of birth should put them in will be adjusted accordingly for the purposes of the competition.

Following the semi-finals in early June, we move onto the finals on the August Bank Holiday Monday.
