We use the website ChessKid.com to run an online chess club for any junior chess player in Leicestershire who wants to play. Online Chess club runs from 6-8pm every Wednesday. A child logs on to chesskid.com and once they have been assigned to the Leicestershire Junior Chess group they are able to play chess against other group members of Leicestershire Junior Chess.
Unlike Saturday Chess Club, there is no charge for this as basic membership of Chesskid.com is free. We encourage all juniors to use the learning tools on the site (ie Lessons, Puzzles etc) which are first rate. Leicestershire Junior Chess has purchased a block of premium membership upgrades and we are happy to upgrade any child at a Leicestershire & Rutland school to premium ‘gold’ membership of chesskid.com once they have worked through all the lessons on chesskid.com up to Kings level provided they continue to use the site on a regular basis. All Saturday Chess Club members are upgraded to premium membership of chesskid.com irrespective of what level they are at.
Contact Paul Mottram for more details about how to start playing in online chess club and about upgrades to premium chesskid.com membership.
