A note about the Devon Junior Chess Association:
This association exists to promote junior chess in the county. It organises tournaments and coaching days for players of all abilities from those who are new to competitive chess right through to those who play at county level. Players from the age of 7 through to those in their teens take part in the events and come from many schools and the junior clubs that exist in the county. The association selects and runs county Under 11 and Under 9 teams.

There are also events for over 11s run on behalf of the Devon County Chess Association which includes the County Under-14 team.
