Congratulations to all!
To accept an offered place... ...players must be paid up ICU members for 2019/20 and confirm acceptance of their offered place by email (incl advising their "Accompanying Adult" ) to firstname.lastname@example.org cc email@example.com , by 30th Oct 2019. Parents are asked to note Playing for Ireland - an overview for Juniors and their Parents
The selection was made from those expressing interest by the due date via the ICU website event entry system and within age bands.
• The ICU and its officials cannot take in loco parentis responsibility for players.
• For all players who are under 12 or younger (where this is defined as the FIDE age, i.e. age as at 1 January of the year in question), a family member must accompany the player.
• For older players (i.e. 12 years old and above) who are competing for the first time in this type of event, the ICU strongly recommends that a family member accompanies them.
• For older players who have had experience of previous similar events, it may be appropriate for families to collaborate such that one adult travels with the team and looks after a number of players in addition to their own child. This may have the advantage of reducing overall costs or managing the time commitment required.
• Such arrangements should be made directly between relevant parents/guardians and must be notified to the Head of Delegation and/or the Development Officer (Junior International) when accepting a place.
• In no circumstances may a single adult be responsible for more than 4 players.
• The adult taking responsibility for others’ children will need to be equipped with a letter from the child’s parent or guardian confirming that they have permission to take the child out of the Ireland.
