    Good morning CYCC players/parents:

    All players who finish top 3 or tied for 2nd /3rd place, will automatically be qualified to participate into WCCC/WYCC. All other players who finish close to the top can apply for approval to attend these world events. Since the timing is very tight for both groups, I urge all parents to start thinking and planning now.

    If you are in U14, U16 and U18 section,

    WYCC registration has already started. Once CYCC champions are announced, you will have two days to decide whether you are going to WYCC or not. For all other players, you will have five days to make a final decision.

    • Jul 12- CYCC champions confirm if they are going to WYCC
    • Jul 15- WYCC deadline date
    • Jul 16- Invoice will be sent to parents
    • Jul 22- Payment due date
    • Jul 29- CFC will wire the money to the WYCC organizer.

    • WYCC fee:
    • FIDE entry/registration fee – official player 70 euro, additional player 140 euro
    • WYCC registration fee – everyone (players and accompanying person) 100 euro
    • CFC youth fund - $150 for players who don’t finish top 3
    • Single room is 115 euro x 13 x 1 = 1495 euro
    • Double room is 80 euro x 13 x 2 = 2080 euro
    • The conversion rate to Canadian is x 1.55 (set by CFC)

    Email to confirm your participle in WYCC.
