Wednesday 18 April 2018 from 9.30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Expert coaching for boys and girls who are not yet at a very advanced level:
● players who are unrated (usually because they have not played in a rated tournament), and
● players with NSWJCL ratings below 700 (in other words, players who are not yet of a very high standard).
(Other coaching opportunities are available for stronger players – contact us for details or click HERE.)
Coaching for Beginners – our coaching clinics include a group for absolute beginners who do not yet know the moves. (Please tell us when booking if the student does not yet play.)
Special All-Girls group – in recognition that some girls prefer the company of other girls.
Eligibility: Participants must be members of the NSW Junior Chess League and aged under 18 on the day of the clinic.
