About NSC Junior Chess Club

NSC Junior Chess Club - Sundays 1:00pm to 2:30pm

  • Multiple groups catering for Beginners to Advanced students
  • Experienced, engaging, fun expert coaching team
  • Training for enjoyment and rapid improvement
  • Focus on tactics training

The Northern Star Chess Sunday program has been specifically designed to develop the 3 most important brain skills for long term chess progress:

  1. Mental Discipline, the willingness to be patient, careful and thoughtful
  2. Forward calculation, visualising and assessing positions a few moves ahead
  3. Pattern recognition, to improve instincts and subconsciously recognise opportunities and the right moment to pause and calculate

JCC has been thriving during 2022 and we are very thankful to have had no disruptions to our ongoing face to face programs. The strong numbers enable us to bring in additional coaches to facilitate more focused individual attention for the students. In Term 4 we shall consider dividing the students into 4 groups instead of 3.
