NCF selects Junior National Team for friendly games against SA school

The Following junior chess players have been selected as part of the National Junior Team with plans under way to send the team to South Africa later this year.

The idea is to have the Namibian Junior team gain experience through a series of friendly games against neighbouring countries, of which South Africa is currently the targeted country. The NCF plans to build a culture of exposure for its junior players and hence the decision to select a junior National Team. The Team is composed of 3 categories of players, namely, the Automatic Qualifiers or 1st Choice Team, the Selective Team, which includes players selected by the National Coach and the Reserve Team. All the players may travel together and play as one team per the NCF's discretion. Organisation of the trip to South Africa is currently underway and more information will be made available in due course.
