The CFC Regular Chess Post March 7/12 The Canadian Youth Chess Championships Are Important.

"The importance of the CYCC lies in its offering of healthy competition and community building within peer groups. The best in the country arrive and compete, all the while receiving practical feedback on their play relative to their peers and affording each competitor an opportunity to learn something about Canada through first-hand ...accounts of activities in other parts of the country. For those that go on to represent Canada at the WYCC, the same benefits and responsibilities apply on a global scale. It really is a grand experience within a great community. Chess, as life itself, of course, transcends governing bodies and truly depends on its community to shape and define it. The competitors in the CYCC represent the future of this community in Canada. "
