In creating a safe and comfortable chess coaching environment for both coach and junior players, we would ask that the following is adhered to:
1. Children should participate the online couch with the parental guidance.
2. All the Children Online Safety Rules recommended by Tusla are applied.
3. Parents should be aware that their children’s video or photo could be transmitted through internet while they link to the online coaching.
4. A space where the young players has room for their online coach and enough peace and quiet to concentrate.
5. A laptop / computer / tablet / phone including a webcam, microphone and speakers. Video telephony software, as agreed with the coach or instructor.
6. A working broadband connection capable of supporting audio and video communication.
7. Coaching will, need to be held in an area where players and coaches can concentrate on the lesson and not be necessarily interrupted.
