2013 North American Youth Chess Championship

(Crossville, TN) Organizers have released registration information for the 2013 North American Youth Chess Championship scheduled for August 15 - 18, in Toronto, Canada. The North American Youth is an open tournament and any USCF player who qualifies for an age group may play but must also notify the USCF of their plans to participate.

As the national federation, the USCF provides the tournament organizers with a letter of endorsement for all US players. This registration must be formalized by the USCF in July so the following information must be sent to the Director of International Youth Events: Player Name, USCF ID, Age/Gender Category, and FIDE player code.

The highest rated player (based on the July Supplement) in that category who is registered in the USCF Office by the July 15th registration deadline will be considered the official representative. Official representatives are provided accommodation based on double occupancy at the Chestnut, where they are also provided buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.

For more information regarding qualifying for national and international invitational scholastic events, go to the USCF website at www.uschess.org/content/view/7865/131/. If you plan to attend this tournament, please contact Jerry Nash at jnash@uschess.org.
