Junior Club meets on Friday evenings (7:00-8:30pm). The 2018 season ends with the last round of the Junior Club Championship on Friday 30th November. The club is closed on December 7th as the venue is in use by another group. We will be open on December 14th, when the trophy for the Junior Championship will be presented to the winner.
The 2018 Junior Club Championship was won by Emily Gan.

In addition to the Junior Club annual membership fee of $30, there is currently a tuition fee of $2 per night, to be paid on the night. A short lecture on some basic aspect of chess is given. This is followed by matches - the results are recorded and internal club ratings are generated from these. This year, the venue is available during school holidays.
We do have plans to provide more structured coaching on Friday nights. This would require an increase in the tuition fee (perhaps to $10). Your views on this idea are welcomed.
The Junior Club is NOT a childcare facility. All players must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Unaccompanied children will not be permitted to attend.
