    Is there any reason why the selections have to be done so early in the year?
    I am sure I am not the only parent of a teenager with major exams...as yet to be advised.
    I have no idea as yet when his major exams will be held
    I would love James to participate but I cannot commit him this early inthe year.
    Are you referring to International Selections or the selection for JETS? They are two different sets of selections.

    The sky is blue. Is that really so?
    Or does it only look blue because it stretches off into infinity?

    International Junior Events Calendar_Changes

    I have been informed by NY Wong, Fide Trainer, that the dates for the 2010 Asian Youth Chess Championship (U8, U10, U12, U14, U16, U18) to be held in Beijing, China, have been changed to the 8th-18th July 2010. The dates for the Asian Junior (U20) Championship have also been changed and it will now be held from the 14th-23rd June 2010.

    It seems I cannot go back to modify post #22 and changed the dates there as well (see here). Please be aware of the changes.

    There is an edit window of 24 hours but admins and moderators can edit outside of this window - I have edited post 22 to show the revised dates and noted "[date changed]" for the two that were changed.

    11th ASEAN+ Age Group Chess Championships

    11th ASEAN+ Age Group Chess Championships

    Subic, Philippines – 4th to 13th June 2010

    The President/Secretary
    All ASEAN National Chess Federations

    Dear Colleagues

    Following the string of successful Asian chess championships in Subic,
    the ASEAN Championships will be held in Subic Freeport, Olongapo City,
    Philippines from 4th to 13th June 2010. Participants may compete in
    the U-8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 20 Age-Groups for Girls and Open. In
    addition, Seniors (aged 50 and above) will be held.

    Subic is a well known resort which has played host to many World and
    Asian sports festivals. It is an ideal venue for youth events enclosed
    in a well guarded enclave with a number of recreational attractions
    for children. Many Asian chess championships have been successfully
    held in Subic which is about 2-1/2 hours from Manila or one hour from
    Clark air base.

    The ASEAN+ Age Group Championships have grown in popularity and shall
    accept direct individual registrations as well as those from countries
    and territories around Asia.

    Please kindly email your registration to us as soon as possible in
    order to ascertain the number of rooms required in the official hotel.

    We look forward to welcoming you to Subic Freeport, Philippines!

    PROSPERO A. PICHAY, JR.
    President
    National Chess Federation of the Philippines
