A new policy has been introduced to encourage young players to join and improve their Go:
"The first three prizewinners of the European and the US Youth Go Championships under 12 and 18 (totally 12 people) get free places at the Insei League. Go Champions under 12 and 18 of any country get 3 months of the League instead of 1 for $95. The young players who took 2-5 places during the last youth Go championship of their country can play for 2 months instead of 1 for $95 (is equal to 50% discount). The rest of young Go players under 18 (stronger than 10 kyu) get the 15% discount."
