Inner West Junior Chess Club 2021

What happens at the chess club: 

The Inner West Junior Chess Club in Burwood runs on two separate days - Mondays and Saturdays. We provide a service to suit children who prefer after-school chess lessons (1 hour), and also those who would rather learn and play chess on the weekend (1.5 hours).

The club caters to players of all levels (Beginners to Advanced). Each week we run a lesson to teach a new skill that is appropriate to the level of the children attending. Beginners will learn how to play and all of the rules of chess, progressing to learn some basic checkmates and strategies later on. Intermediate and Advanced players will learn about opening theories, tactics, strategies and endgames improving their game and expanding the calculation skills and foresight that they have already been developing. Children will also be given time to play friendly and competitive games against each other and to solve simulated chess puzzles.

Workbooks are also available to aid your child’s development and for extra practice at home. For more information on our Workbooks, please click here.
