Registration for the 2022/23 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 is restarting face to face meetings from September 2022 onwards. Details will be posted to the club website ahead of a restart date once this is known.
The normal club meeting arrangements should therefore apply from November 2022 onwards. These arrangements can be described as follows:
Junior club sessions will take place between 2:30pm-4:00pm every Saturday, starting 24th September in 2022.
Face to face meetings are being planned to restart from late September 2022. 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 re-established our meetings, so a few weeks afer we start to meet in September 2022)
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, in late September 2022.
A first organising meeting is lanned for 21st September 2022 at 8pm at Mountview venue.
Coaching for adults (ZOOM, Lichess events) will restart once Leinster team squads are in place.
