The Matches start the SECOND week back in second term - the week ending Friday 10th May
I have just listed the Friday dates - so adjust for Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday comps please. Many of the primary competitions take place on days other than the Friday - the Hills Competition for example is typically Mondays, while there are others after-school on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights etc but these dates should be a useful guide. We have had to start the competitions this first week because of the strange holiday times this year.

1 Fri 10th May;
5 Fri 2nd August,
The Secondary Competition dates are:
Div 1 Dates are:

of Adelaide Junior Championships
The exact details for this year interschool matches have still to be finalised - the availability of venues and Directors of Play etc - but team registrations will start in early March with all the Interschool Matches starting in the SECOND week of Second Term. I will send out an email reminder of when to register. The more teams and students and schools who take part the better, so if your school has played before, please do so again with even more teams - and if you are a new school and a bit unsure of what's involved, please give me a ring and I am sure you will find process of entering teams etc very simple.
As well as the normal State and City of Adelaide Junior Championships scheduled through the year, there are many events held by the SA Chess Association that are very suitable for youngsters, such as the adult Interclub Matches which start on Tuesday 30th April and the Checkmate Weekend Tournament in early July.
We strongly urge all keen students to participate where possible in events which include adults and the use of clocks - the improvement can be enormous. Please check www.sachess.org for details.
