Hi Learners Chess Parents and Friends!

Another reminder here to sign up for our after school chess programs if plan to and have not already done so.
We are starting up many of our Thursday clubs tomorrow and the rest on the days to follow.

Please do sign up sooner than later. We need to have a good idea of how many kids will be at each club so we can appropriately place our assistant coaches. 

If your child's school does not currently have a Learners Chess club, you may sign up for a club at a school near you. Here is a map of all of our clubs this year.
