Registration for the 2021/22 season is now due and you can do so by filling in this membership form. Membership fees must be paid during the month of September for all existing members and those interested in joining the club.
The club uses a combination of Whatsapp (to stay in touch) and Zoom (to provide coaching). Once you join the club, we will communicate with you using Whatsapp, Zoom and posts to this website.
Whilst we currently use these Online chess resources, the club hopes to restart face to face meetings after the end of October 2021. Details will be posted to the club website ahead of a restart date ince this is known.
The normal club meeting arrangements should therefore apply from November 2021 onwards. These arrangements can be described as follows:
Online: Junior sessions will take place between 3:00pm-5:30pm every Saturday, starting 25th September in 2021.
Face to face meetings are being planned to restart from late October 2021, when current government restrictions due to Covid relax. Before coming to the Saturday Junior Club, you need to indicate your child’s intention to attend in order to allow for appropriate planning and preparation for each session via the “Register Junior attendance” link in our website. (This will be operational once we have confirmed a club restart is possible).
Parents are more than welcome to become Saturday volunteers for the purpose of helping the club run the Saturday sessions. You will be asked to help generally one but no more than two sessions per month and your help is really appreciated. If you would like to help please write us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or let any of the volunteers know at the Saturday session when sessions restart. Note that Garda vetting via the club will be required.
The Adult Club meets on Mondays from 7:30pm, starting after the October Bank holiday weekend in 2021.
Online chess (ZOOM, Lichess events) wil restart for the Adults from September 27th, 2021.
