March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This is the official website for the Junior Chess League Inc in South Australia and it is used to inform you about all our junior chess activities. You will find here all the details about the interschool primary and secondary matches, as well as how to take part in tournaments and – very exciting – make use of chess on the Internet. The SAJCL been promoting Junior Chess in SA for over 60 years thanks to the dedication and passion of Evelyn and Gary Koshnitsky and many other tireless volunteers and we are very grateful to all the support given to us by many schools and teachers.
And as a non-profit local organisation, we endeavour to make chess affordable and accessible to everyone.
The SAJCL is delighted to be associated with the online chess server called Chesskid and have negotiated a special deal for students in South Australia – instead of the usual $100 annual fee, we can provide it for just $25 which we think will be a huge benefit for all keen students.

Thanks to the very strong support for our appeal for financial support due to the closure of the Chess Centre for 4 months from the 15th March, the South Australian Chess Association (SACA) and the South Australian Junior Chess League (SAJCL ) has now formally closed the Appeal.
We are most grateful to the 60+ donors who have contributed around $10,000 which has prevented an unaffordable loss due to the Covid-19 restrictions. The Landlord Chris Angelopoulos of the Duke Group also cooperated greatly by providing a helpful rent reduction for the 4 months’ closure period.
The South Australian Chess Community has rallied around in true Aussie fashion with donations from players , supporters , friends and a number of schools which has ensured the continued operation of the Chess Centre which is an essential component of chess in South Australia for hosting both Adult and Junior chess events.
The Chess Centre was able to re-open in late July and there has been much activity with a resumption of both the Adult Interclub matches and tournaments, and the Junior holiday tournaments and Inter-school matches, all following a full and carefully considered Covid-19 Management Plan.
All donations made, large and small, are greatly appreciated and as we advised during the Appeal Campaign, all donors will be acknowledged by name and all the 60+ names will be shown as best we can in the chronological order of the donation received.
SACA and SAJCL is considering providing a get together thank-you event for all donors in the near future.
As President, I offer our heartfelt thanks on behalf of the committees of both SACA and SAJCL for the support and encouragement we have received. The testing times have brought our Chess community together in a remarkable way.
