The EGF Academy is managed by Viktor Lin 6d.

Application as participant

Please send your application to viktor (dot) lin (at) hotmail (dot) com at the latest one week before the respective cycle starts.
I need the following information:

  • Name
  • Birthday
  • Current EGF rating
  • KGS account
  • Participation in cycle(s): 1/2/3/4
  • NEW Recommendation by your national go association or from Academy manager Vikor Lin

You will get a response as soon as possible on whether you are accepted or not, and further information. The players are selected according to strength and age.

The participation fee is 15€ per cycle until cycle 4. (League 1 players (NEW) are exempt from these fees. The players who took part in the CEGO training in Beijing are exempt for the term immediately following their return.)
We encourage the national go association to carry the participation fees for their talented players. However, you need to sort it out by yourself with your national go association.

Waiting list places
In case there are more applicants than available places and the Academy's capacity is full, and you do not get a place despite being fully eligible, you will be on a waiting list, for 10€ per cycle (NEW), until a place opens up. The EGF Academy manager decides in all conscious which applicants get a playing/waiting list place. As a student on the waiting list, you cannot play league games, but you can participate at lessons and access material on the website.

You can send any questions to Viktor Lin, either via the e-mail address above or on KGS (user Sandmann).
