**All national top junior lists are based on standard ratings (i.e.
ratings gained from events where each player has a minimum of 60 minutes per game).
Standard ratings are used to select juniors for national development activities like the Junior Elite Training Squad (JETS) and international representative junior events, as well as some ACT Junior Chess League
junior development activities.
