What happens at the chess club:
The Parramatta Junior Chess Club started in 2010 and now has a new location, which is the Sydney Academy of Chess - Parramatta Branch, very close to Westfield Parramatta! The club meets on Saturdays and runs for 1.5 hours in the morning. We will also be continuing the popular monthly Saturday Fun Tournaments.
The club caters to players of all levels (Beginners to Advanced). Each week the chess coach conducts 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.
