In 2017 only 33 players (and in 2018 only 18 players) from all over Europe have participated the European Youth Championship being younger than 20 and at least amateur 1 Dan. In the Jena International Go School (JIGS) children in the age of 8-20 years should be trained, aiming to compete on Asian professional level. But also Go players of any age can improve their Go skills. Here, we propose a way to run such a Go school in the long term, after four years of establishment to run independent from sponsorship in a long-term future.
To achieve the aim to run JIGS as a long-term Go school, we envision three different lines:
- Line I for Elite Go Students: 8-20 years old children can live with their teacher together, studying Go all day and night (minus school and sleeping ;))
- Line II for International Go Students: Go lovers of any age can strengthen their Go skills
- Line III for Camp Students: 8-20 years old children can spend their holiday at JIGS, studying and enjoying Go
