  1. Hi Henry,

    I just post a wrong message on junior session. As actually I want my son to join the senior session! Just saw that we have missed Monday session, is it the class on every Monday at 7:30pm?

    Many thanks

    • Hi Lin,

      I would like to know if your son has any experience on chess before?

      Currently Senior session is for adult and senior young players (normally above 15 years old). The major activity in senior session is to attend Leinster Chess Union League (div 1 and div 4). div 1 is the highest level, div 4 is middle level. You can check the league here:

      On the other hand, the Junior session has regular gathering every Saturday afternoon 4:00pm-5:30pm. Location is Coolmine Community School. The major activity is to encourage children to play each other. There are short training from time to time. There will be one or two teams in Junior session to attend LCU league as well (div 6). Div 6 is entry level. The best two teams play in div 6 have chance to promote to div5. Any player showed great potential in div 6, is possible to be promoted to our club’s div 4 or even div 1 team. The players in div 6 are entitled to the squads, which will happen on Monday evening 7:30pm. It is a special training for serious chess playing.

      If you register membership for your son, he will be registered as junior member anyway. This doesn’t mean he cannot get involved in the activity in senior session.

      I suggest that you bring your son to the club on Saturday afternoon and have a look. If you want to know further detail about the LCU league game please send email to me yongheng.liu@gmail.com.

      And, 16th September Monday at 8:00 pm, there will be a tournament among the whole club, including junior and senior sessions. Our top players will give some talks after the tournament. You are welcome to join and to talk with those players.

      Regards,

      Henry
