Coaching Classes and Tournaments  Each Sunday morning from 10am – 12 noon.

<Please note – no class on Sunday 4th October – the long weekend !>

VENUE: The Chess Centre, 10 Ranelagh St Adelaide 5000

Each Coaching Class is suitable for youngsters of all levels and ages (6+) – from beginner (but a knowledge of how the pieces move will be assumed) to advanced.

The class covers many key ideas and consist of short lessons and games, all designed to help students discover the real joy of chess. Girls in particular are taught to counter-attack! Advanced students will discover ‘Savage chess’!

All the students play each other in a friendly, social atmosphere. Youngsters older than 6 should have no problems coping with the 2 hours session – the time just flies.

Parents are very welcome to stay for all sessions if they wish.

Fee: The cost for the morning session is $15.

Please note: These classes will only go ahead at the Chess Centre if there are no restrictions placed on them in SA. We will be following all the guidelines to try to ensure a Covid-Safe environment.

We will also have a range of chess sets and boards for sale, along with books and timers.

We can also upgrade your ChessKid account to Gold Membership on behalf of the SA Junior Chess League for just $20 for the year – brilliant value. For more details and to register, please ring Alan on 0401 672 481
