All chess academy squads run on Saturday's weekly online. The academy does not run onsite. All squads start on Saturday 3 February 2024.
Before registering for the academy, you will need to choose which squad you would like to join. Squads are based on ability. Ability is determined by a players chess rating. Chess players get a chess rating by playing tournament games.
STEP 1 - CHECK YOUR CHILDS RATING
NO RATING? NO PROBLEM - DO OUR SKILLS ASSESSMENT
If your child does not have a chess rating, or you don't know what it is, do our skills assessment to get a rough estimate. Then return here to choose the right squad for your child. The skills assessment covers rules, tactics, endgames, strategy and attacking ideas. The assessment takes around 15 minutes to complete.
STEP 2 - CHOOSE A SQUAD
Choose a squad that suits the skill level of your child and the timing that works for you.
