International Junior Selection for 2021
A significant number of top juniors have not played at all competitively in Chess Scotland tournaments this season so far. Despite the lack of over-the-board opportunities, there are online tournaments every month which are Chess Scotland graded. Activity in these tournaments continue to be a criterion for eligibility for selection. Even with the news of pending return to normality, it is still unlikely that there will be many over-the-board tournaments between now and the time when the International Junior Selection Committee will need to meet to select teams for summer tournaments.
I would urge juniors interested in selection to ensure that their amount of activity meets the junior selection criteria. As per previous posts, allegro grading is currently the more accurate measure of recent form.
