During Autumn League, from September through December, Center Divison teams will enjoy the competition that will have 8 rounds in each age category, with a scoring system that will see the first fifteen teams in each round receiving points for the final standings (20-18-16-14-12-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1) and compete for the overall win in the Worldwide Autumn League. If the tournament has more groups, the first 10 places are taken from A group, and the rest from the B group, until fifteen teams get points.
Worldwide Junior Chess League is an online chess competition for children. Started as a collaboration of several chess enthusiasts, the tournament became very popular, with more than 2000 children participating, coming from more than 70 countries.
Worldwide tournament has been free for all participants for over a year now, but the amount of resources to keep it running has increased greatly. In order to continue running the League for free, some financial backup is necessary.
All coaches, clubs, academies, and organizations, together with all the parents, are invited to help.
