U12 Open and Girls
U14 Open and Girls
U16 Open and Girls
U18 Open and Girls

Age is determined as of Dec 31st 2010, for the 2011 series.
Organizers may combine sections depending upon the number of participants or tradition in their region. This may be Girls and Open sections together or more than one Open and Girls sections combined as necessary for the pairing. Each of the 12 sections may have the first three places as winners of medals, certificates and invitations to the CYCC 2011.
The format is a 5 round Swiss (RR as required). There are advantages to having 90 min + 30 sec increment time control to prepare the players for the CYCC, but tradition or regional needs may go with a shorter time control i.e. 30 min/game to accommodate a one day tournament.


The YCC organizers should commit to the CFC either with the YCC package or with a minimum payment to the CFC ($4 per player) and no package but e-mailed certificates which they print.
To order package for the qualifier the organizer will take responsibility to send $6 per participant to the CFC Youth Program but must send a minimum $200 and only to a maximum of $400. 



Please, send email order with your address to CFC Office and copy to Michael Barron at " This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ". The package will be delivered to your address by the CFC equipment contractor.

YCC package will include:
-36 medals (3 medals for each of the 12 sections),
-36 certificates for the winners,
-1 CFC Organizers shirt,
-one sack (16 pieces) of key chains as small door prizes.


Pairing with Swiss Sys:
Swiss Sys Pairing program is provided free of charge to organizers of a CFC rated event and using Swiss Sys will cut costs when submitting the results for rating.
Here is the URL for the procedure to get a copy of Swiss Sys for a tournament.

Good tournament conditions:
First and Foremost: the organizers and the participants should have fun.
The most important conditions for the players include quiet, good air quality and good lighting. Parents need a place to be able to congregate without disrupting play and should be separated from the players. This is much better for players, Tournament Directors and the parents. 
For more detailed descriptions of good tournament conditions please see 
http://www.chess.ca/section_9.htm

And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
