2015 Johns-Putra Australian Junior Elite Training Squad (JETS)

Application form for the Australia Junior Chess League’s 2015 JETS Training Squad sponsored by Geraldine Johns-Putra.

The Australian Junior Chess League is pleased to invite applications from talented Australian juniors (U/18) for the national junior training squad.

The JETS Squad is Australia’s premier development squad, aimed at encouraging and challenging the next generation of Australian champions. (Past JETS members have gone on to become Grandmasters and International Masters.)

Applicants are judged by enthusiasm and commitment as well as rating, with priority for applicants aged 14 and under.

A maximum of 30 players will be selected, with at least a third of squad members being of each gender.

Eligibility for the Squad will require participation in at least one of the Australian Open Championships (Sydney) or Australian Junior Championships (Canberra), in January 2014. (A very small number of exceptions may be made in extenuating circumstances. Please state on application.)

The selected members of the 2014 JETS Squad should commit to attend the national junior training camp, to be held at Somerset College on the Gold Coast from June 27 – July 1. The first two days of the camp will involve competing in the Gold Coast Open, with post-game analysis by JETS coaches.

The final three days will involve free intensive coaching in small groups by Grandmasters and International Masters, plus a Behaviour and Ethics Hypothetical and a Grandmaster Simultaneous Exhibition.

Additional half or full day mini-camps, free for JETS Squad members, may be held in other major cities, usually in conjunction with a Grand Prix weekend tournament.

In the first half of the year, JETS Squad members may occasionally be set homework.
