Next minibus tournament trip - in Cheshire

Sunday 22nd March 2020 Frodsham Community Centre, Fluin Lane, Frodsham

Annual European Youth tournament - in Croatia

Thursday 12th - Saturday 14th March 2020 - but must apply by December. This is BGA-run trip, not a CHS one. Interested students should see Mr/Mrs Harvey, to ask questions, apply or register interest, and/or see more on the BGA Calendar page. It's near the capital, Zagreb. The BGA has asked Helen and Martin Harvey to lead a team of UK youngsters - whether accompanied by a parent, or not - for this annual EYGC tournament, as for prior trips. Players would be representing the UK. Note that this period is in term time (as most years), and an extra flying day is needed before and after the 3-day event. Must apply by December 2020 to Mr/Mrs Harvey.

Summer Residential Camp

Monday 24th to Thursday 27th August 2020 Note: we've retained the extra day we added in 2019, as it proved popular. Venue: PGL Caythorpe Court, Lincolnshire. This is an annual event, started in 2017. In 2019, 20+ youngsters attended, Y7 to Y12, including 10 from CHS. This is BGA-run trip, not one run as a CHS one. Mr +Mrs Harvey & 3 other BGA adults (all fully DBS-vetted) - including Alison Bexfield, the UK Youth squad captain - will run Go-teaching sessions, and 4-6 outdoor activities will be run by PGL staff. Contact Mr Harvey with any queries, on martin.harvey at

CHS Ranking List

Please take a look at the CHS Ranking List, to see where CHS players now stand in Europe
- e.g. by the time the then-top CHS Go-player - Tom Bradbury left for University in 2019, he had reached 2-kyu and thus became the first from CHS to enter the Top 2,000 'EGF-placed' (European) players - out of all 45,000 Professionals, adults & youngsters! [I wonder who will be the second from CHS !]

Usual comments:

  • *** Parents MUST give consent via Parental Portal, in good time, for a student to be allowed on the school minibus ***
  • see the Junior Grading List for grades of all under age 18, who have played in a recent tournament & are 30-kyu or stronger (apologies if it's not bang up-to-date - it's a constant work in progress!)
  • see the Youth Grand Prix if you've played in a 2019 tournament;
  • see the Annual DDK Grand Prix for players no stronger than 10 kyu at the start of this year;
  • see the BGA Calendar for full details of events listed above (& those that aren't).
  • ask Mr Winslow [Head of Physics] or Mr/Mrs Harvey if you have any queries, e.g. re Go badges, transport, how to improve, what to read (esp. CHS library), Go on YouTube, buying equipment, getting Go leaflets, forthcoming events, foreign tournaments ... you name it!
