OYCC 2020

RE CoVid19: As things are very much now in flux, status and directions are changing daily, we will be re-evaluating the status of the Ontario Youth Chess Championships in EARLY APRIL. Please return here for the status of this annual event at that time.

*UPDATE* - We will unfortunately have to postpone the OYCC to a later date. If you have registered already, please watch your inbox for updates - or - whether you have already registered or not, please watch this space for updates on the 2020 Ontario Youth Chess Championships!

The Ontario Youth Chess Championships (OYCC) are coming ...

April 18/19, 2020

This year, again, the event will be hosted at Kitchener City Hall (200 King St. W., Kitchener, ON). This beautiful facility has lots of room for friends and family to socialize as they await the results of their young hopefuls.

Youth Championships for the OCA

The OYCC is the annual youth championship that crowns the Ontario Champions in each of 12 categories:

  • Under 8 both Girls and Open
  • Under 10 both Girls and Open
  • Under 12 both Girls and Open
  • Under 14 both Girls and Open
  • Under 16 both Girls and Open
  • Under 18 both Girls and Open

As such, the OYCC is the Official Youth Championship of the Ontario Chess Association (OCA)

Youth Qualifier for the CYCC

The OYCC also is an official qualifier event that will qualify the top players from each section to go on to the Canadian Youth Chess Championships (CYCC).

The CYCC in turn determines Canada's team that will compete in the World Youth & Cadets Chess Championships (WYCC & WCCC).

Bursary event for the CYCC

The OYCC will also be able to support the top players from each section to go on to the CYCC with bursaries that may cover anywhere from part of the entry fee to the CYCC to full entry plus some more to help with travel/hotel expenses!

In order to qualify for bursaries, players must finish at or near the top of their section at the OYCC and use the funds for entry into the same section at the 2020 CYCC.

Bursaries may be limited to sections with a minimum of 6 players
