THE LISTING is still ongoing for the Visayag Leg of the Shell National Youth Active Chess Championships 2015 which will happen this weekend at the SM City-Cebu Event Center.

This year, the Shell tournament will have three divisions – the Kiddies (7-12 years old), Juniors (13-16) and the Seniors Division (17-20).

Entry in the Visayas Leg as well as the other three other succeeding legs are limited to just 300 for the three divisions.

The top two finishers and the top female performers in each category will be flown to Manila to join the other qualifiers from the five other elimination legs.

“With the number of players now taking up the sport, Shell believes in empowering the youth by giving them the opportunity to hone their skills and be the best they can. We continue to innovate our tournament program to produce more competitive, top caliber athletes that will someday be our national pride,” said Shell social investment manager Jackie Ampil.

The three other qualifiers will be held at the SM Cagayan de Oro Event Center on July 18-19 for Northern Mindanao, SM Davao Annex Event Center on Aug. 8 and 9 for Southern Mindanao and at the SM Batangas Event Center on Aug. 15 and 16 for the Southern Luzon.
