Hi Everyone,

The ACT Junior Chess League will run two development activities over the weekend of Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th May.

Future Stars Tournament (Under 500 rated)
Saturday 8th May

Future Stars is a one-day, three-round tournament for novice level juniors seeking to gain experience in playing games with standard time controls (in this case, 60 minutes plus 10 seconds per move from move 1). Players will compete in small groups, with two ACTJCL coaches providing individual game analysis after players have completed their games.

To be eligible for this event, juniors must have either an Australian Chess Federation standard rating* below 500 or no standard rating, know the rules of chess and be able to confidently move the pieces around the board. Players will need to record all of their moves during games (see this PDF for instructions on how to record chess moves).

See the attached flyer for further details about this event or follow this link:

Entry is via Trybooking only (the link is in the event flyer) and limited to thirty entriesEntries close at 9pm on Friday 7th May. No entries will be accepted on the day.

*A standard rating is an official rating gained from playing games where each player receives at least 60 minutes per game. Use this ratings lookup tool to see if your child has a standard rating:


Grandmaster Simul (500+ rated)
Sunday 9th May 

The ACTJCL will hold a simultaneous exhibition with Grandmaster Anton Smirnov for intermediate to advanced level ACT junior players on Sunday 9th May. A simultaneous exhibition is an event where one player (typically of a master level) plays games against multiple opponents at the same time. 

Entry to this event is by application only and restricted to 19 players. To be eligible, juniors should:

  • Have been born on or after 1 January 2003, and
  • Reside in the ACT or immediate surrounds, and
  • Have an Australian Chess Federation standard rating of 500 or greater, and
  • Be able to demonstrate a regular chess commitment (e.g. school chess club, Norths Junior Chess Club, Canberra, Tuggeranong or Gungahlin Chess Clubs, Street Chess etc) over a period of several months at a minimum, or have played in at least three ACTJCL and/or ACTCA events in 2021, and
