Canterbury Chess Club provides coaching courses with experienced coaches. These courses are held at our clubrooms.

We have a structured curriculum designed by Craig Hall, an experienced arbiter (referee/umpire) and trainer accredited by the World Chess Federation (FIDE) that we plan our lessons around. There will also be time for practice games at the end.

We offer courses for children aged 8-15 on Fridays from 5:30 to 6:45pm and 7 to 8:15pm during school terms. Note that lessons are not held on 19 May (the clubrooms are in use for a tournament), the last day of term or public holidays (so courses are usually 8-9 lessons).

Please note that students under 13 must be accompanied by a parent/caregiver for the evening.

We also offer courses for adults aged 16+ on Mondays from 5 to 6pm. Note that lessons are not held on public holidays (courses are usually 8-9 lessons).

We also offer occasional shorter courses on various topics for students aged 11+. Details of these will be added here and posted to our Facebook page - please check back here occasionally or follow us there.
