Junior, Talent and Elite Squads

Our premier coaching program started in September of 2015 and is especially designed for children that are talented at chess and/or are the strongest player in their school and or year group. This is an invite-only club. Members meet several times during term-time to get coached by some of our strongest coaches and they also travel together to tournaments. At the moment the squads are held in two locations, Swiss Cottage and Notting Hill. The Junior Squad runs on Saturdays for 2 hours, while Talent and Elite run on Sundays for 4 hours.
