Junior Club

Junior Club meets on Friday evenings (7:00-8:30pm). The 2019 season began on Friday 25th January.

In addition to the Junior Club annual membership fee of $30, in 2019 there is a tuition fee of $2 per night, for basic tuition, or $5, for intermediate or advanced coaching, paid on the night. This year, players are expected to sign in at the door, and if the player is under 15 then a parent or care-giver must also sign in (and remain present throughout the evening). The fee for the evening is paid on arrival, at the door, when signing in - where the level of tuition can be chosen.

In addition to tuition, there are matches between players present. The results are recorded and internal club ratings are generated from these. In 2019, the venue is available during school holidays, and will therefore be open almost every Friday evening.

If you can't get to the club, then you can practice tactics here!

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.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,
In the past few weeks, some children have been left in the club on their own. Some children were left at the club after closing.
We must reiterate that the North Shore Chess Club is not a child care centre. Parents and caregivers are solely responsible for the safety of their children. Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver in the club.
