Formalities

The EGF Academy is not "just another online school" and intended only for the most outstanding players. Citizenship in an EGF member country required. 
Your eligibility will depend on your age and EGF rank. Currently the players in the EGF Academy are about: 2k-3k for 10 years old, 1d-3d for 15 years old, 3d and up for 20 years old and up.

Students in the EGF Academy will play each other, with every game being commented by the teacher. Furthermore they will attend lessons and gain access to all game commentaries. Students are welcome to present their tournament games for review.

Starting in Season 3, the participation fee is 15€ per cycle. (Please check the "application" section.)

The EGF Academy consists of 5 leagues. In the future perhaps we can add further leagues.

Friendship matches with students from Ge Yuhong Go Academy can be arranged for the top league.

The top player of each league will rise to an upper league in the next cycle, and the bottom player will drop to a lower league.
It is necessary that no games are skipped, otherwise a punishment such as banning may be imposed.


Waiting list spectator

(Introduced in Season 3.) If you are elegible to participate, but cannot join because the Academy's capacity is full, you can decide to spectate for 5€ per cycle. You cannot play league games, but you can participate at lessons and access material on the website. You will become a regular Academy student when a place opens up.
