Training tournament – March 21st (as gaeilge)

Entries are now invited for our annual club training tournament. This event will form a part of our club Championship 2015. It will be run ‘as gaeilge’ / in Irish in celebration of the Week of Irish / seachtain na ngaeilge. It will be easy for those who do not speak Irish to understand as there will be translation.

We expect this will be held at the 12th Lock, Castleknock. Confirmation of the venue will be provided to you when you enter.

This event is both our Club championship and an opportunity to undertake some key training ahead of the Irish Juniors. It is highly recommended to all our Juniors. Senior players are asked to play to give the Junior strong opposition. The format of the event will be a small 4-player all-play-alls with a mix of players across categories. In most cases, we expect that a Group will consist of one Senior player; a player in the Under 14/16 category; and two players from Under 10/12. Long time controls will apply. Please note that the Under 8s will play a separate Swiss event using the short (15 minutes each) time control normal for their events.

A key feature of the training event will be POST MORTEMS. Each game will be analysed and reviewed by players with assistance of a senior and highly rated player.
