Junior Club meets on Friday evenings (7:00-8:30pm). The 2018 season began on Friday 23rd February.
2018 Junior Club Championship: this is currently being held with one
round each Friday night. Any member who is present on Friday night can
take part. A roll-call of who is present will be taken each Friday and
everyone present will go into the draw. Note that the Vega files include
all known members; this is for the convenience of the arbiter! Files
will be regenerated once the event is finished, to include only those
who took part.

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.
