In addition to the Junior Club annual membership fee of $30, in 2018 there was a tuition fee of $2 per night, paid on the night. A short lecture on some basic aspect of chess was given. 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.

In addition to tuition (format to be decided), 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.
