    Asian Youth Age Championships (U8-U18)
    World Junior Championships (U20)
    Asian Junior Championship (U20)
    All of these have both an open and a girls division.
    and the World U16 Olympiad which is an open teams tournament

    The dates for these event are

    June 12-21
    ASEAN Age Group Championships (Note: Australian players are usually allowed to compete in ASEAN Championships)

    The dates for the Asian Youth and and Asian Juniors have not been released, and the Asean tournament dates have yet to be confirmed by FIDE however if you are interested in going to either of these tournaments, you must apply now (acceptance of these selections will be deferred until after the dates are announced)


    The Asean tournament is a new tournament for Australia to enter, and the exact regulations and age divisions are still to be announced. In 2007 there were age catagories, but unlike World Youths, there is no free accomodation for the first selected player. This may change for 2008. In order to play in this tournament you MUST apply for it and be selected.

    There are a few other tournaments held during the year to which Australia is allowed to send players. These are

    April 26-May 5
    World Schools Individual Championships
    Singapore

    July 9-17 2008
    World Schools Championship,
    Pardubice, Czech Republic

    September 1-7
    ASEAN Youth U/9, U/12 and U/15 Youth Teams Championships
    Venue as yet unknown.

    If you are interested in playing any of these please let me know.

    Selections will close on the 9 March 2008.

    Email me if you have any queries/problems with the site. If you wish to see the selection procedure by-law please go to http://www.auschess.org.au/constitut...res_By-law.txt, or request a copy from me.
