Weekend Training Programme

Our Training programme is designed for the following groups of children:

  1. Those who want to develop their powers of concentration and critical skills so they can do better in school and also do better at solving everyday problems.
  2. Those who want to learn the game or to improve and play in competitions.
  3. Those who just want to have fun playing the game.

Children are grouped according to age and ability. Training takes place every Saturday at the Chess Resource Centre, #13 Brabant Street, Woodbrook and at The Arima Boys’ R.C. School, Corner of Woodford and Sanchez Streets, Arima.

Groups will have a maximum of ten (15) persons and will be tutored by a senior player with at least ten (10) years of tournament experience. Children are allowed to develop at their own pace. They are encouraged not to be complacent because of any feeling of superiority, or feel discouraged by any feeling of inferiority. Children are also encouraged to be sensitive to each other's weaknesses and seek to help each other when they can.
