Key Coaching and Tournament dates for 2022
These coaching classes are run by Knights & Bytes and the tournaments are either run by the SA Junior Chess League or the SA Chess Association Inc.
We currently offer coaching via Zoom on Saturday mornings for Juniors at either 8am, 9:30am or 11am and the sessions usually go for 60-75 minutes – puzzles, games ideas!
And for Adults we have Zoom sessions on Monday evenings from 6:30-8pm – the cost per session is $15.
We have also restarted our Sunday Rookies morning sessions at the Chess Centre for juniors – it starts at 10am and finishes at noon and involves lessons and game – the cost is $15 per morning or $20 for 2 children – and these generally run through the school term with a break in the holidays.
The following dates for our holiday events may need to change depending on the course of the current pandemic but please check the following websites before the event and to register:
The bookings will also all be through the TryBooking system and that way we can notify the participants of any changes. However, players and participants will generally still be accepted if they turn up on the day of the event.
Please note that a player’s age is considered that person’s age on the 1st January 2022.
