The Champions Trophy 2020 welcome letter will be posted here as we get closer to the event.
The Champions Trophy is an annual event aimed to find the best individual junior chess player in New Zealand.
To qualify for the event, you must either:
"Many thanks to you and your team for the superb organisation of the tournament on Saturday - a really great day :) My son really enjoyed the games he played and really enjoyed the day."
Madelaine - Gifted Children Team Leader
More information will be provided closer to date with all the details of the event including attire, parking, directions once you arrive, meals on the day and prizes.
You do not require a team or involvement with your school to enter the Champions Trophy. Entry into the Champions Trophy is direct between the individual and Chess Power. Note though Champions Trophy invitations may be distributed via your school.
The Champions Trophy gives a channel for talented kids that may or may not have a talented team. So they can still participate in a National event despite not having a school team backing them.
The Champions Trophy is an individual event. This year it will run in three divisions, Junior, Intermediate and Open. Juniors (Years 1-6) and Intermediates (Years 7-8) are able to play in the Open division if they wish. There will be four trophies:
15 minutes/move per player. 9 rounds.
$67.50 if paid by 17 August 2020
$75 if paid later than 17 August 2020
