My experience with boys and girls

In my experience separating boys from girls at young ages is not necessary. Girls have no problem playing boys in our club, plus are pretty competitive.

Awarding separate trophies between them is just an incentive to keep girls involved, so it is not done with the purpose of discriminating. Moreover boys do not get upset if girls compete for different trophies in the same tournament/group.

There was an interesting situation at the Canadian Youth Chess Championship 2006. One very strong girl has immigrated into Canada a couple of months ago and was not eligible to play in her age group (under 18). The organizers could have made an exception, but there was a reason for not doing it! When she insisted to play, the organizers said that her participation would affect the boys final standings (boys and girls played together in that age group). This just shows (between other things) that girls can compete and have an influence in the final standings!
