NJCA Update

Due to Covid-19 Restrictions on mixing households and school facilities not currently being available for external organisations, we are unable to plan for any face to face NJCA tournaments to take place over the next few months.

However, we are working on ideas to provide online events and will update this website in due course.

We hope all our Northumbria Junior Chess Community is keeping safe and well at this time and look forward to seeing everyone once we are able to do so!

Megafinal Entry Link

Please note that if your child has qualified for the Megafinal at RGS on the 18th May via either school or the Last Chance Saloon, the UK Chess Challenge have placed a deadline of 11th May for entries.

You can enter via this link:https://www.delanceyukschoolschesschallenge.com/product/2019-northumbria-megafinal-18th-may/

You will know if your child has qualified if they have been given a ‘Golden Ticket’ from their school or the LCS (different rules apply to Senior School age children). Please do check that your child has qualified before entering.

Please note, although the NJCA assists in this event by providing equipment and volunteers, it is organised under the remit of the UK Chess Challenge.
