There will be three coaches: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. There are 10 sessions from November 18, 2013 - March 3, 2014. The sessions consist of a 20 minute lecture and 55 minutes of play. Coaches and Club organizers, Josh Shoenfeld, Laurene Phillips and Maureen McKenzie will head up the club sessions with parent volunteers. Parents are required to volunteer for at least 1 session. You do not need to know how to play chess to be a volunteer, but must be able to support children in paying attention and encourage them in playing chess.
