Coaching and Junior Development Coordinator


To encourage and facilitate the coaching of our members by providing learning opportunities, either face-to-face or via  picture of Voldi GailinsSkype, phone or any means convenient to the coach or student concerned. Group coaching opportunities can also be arranged, though this is logistically more difficult. The latest initiative is to encourage members to coach and learn from each other to promote a better understanding of chess and to increase social interaction amongst the membership.


To encourage the playing of chess by our junior members, to give extra coaching opportunities to keen and promising juniors, to assist and promote junior competitions where possible and to encourage juniors to play in regular tournaments. To encourage junior members to use our library facilities for study material and suggest other sources of learning where appropriate. To persuade juniors and their parents or guardians that chess is an excellent way to develop mental skills and to provide a life-long opportunity to reach maximum potential
