Junior Chess

Junior Chess Coaching in Melbourne 

The MCC is serious about supporting juniors at the club to improve in a friendly atmosphere. 2012 will see the creation of Melbourne Chess Club Scholarships offered to 10-12 of the Club's Juniors.                     

Saturday 10 am: Junior (under 18) coaching with Nick Speck and his company Chess Education. From 10 am to 12 noon, Nick gives expert coaching for all level of kids who want to improve their chess. Substantial discounts for MCC members. Many of the kids who attend Saturday morning coaching also play in the Allegro at 2pm (open to both kids and adults).

The MCC has many junior members, all of whom are improving rapidly - so you had better beat them while/if you still can! Most of our kids attend the junior coaching with Nick Speck from 10 am to 12 noon on Saturday mornings during school term. The program is held conveniently before the Allegro so that kids can stay on and play in that event.

For details about junior classes with Nick Speck, check out his website http://chesseducation.com.au/.




*Juniors or parents interested in private coaching can find info here. We may be able to organise a coach between the noon finish of the junior lessons and the 2pm start time of the Allegro.


Schools Recognize Benefits of Chess


Teaching children to play chess is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to promote their intellectual and social development. They learn to focus, to analyze logically, to create plans, to weigh the consequences of 
their actions – all in an environment that fosters friendship, respect, and sportsmanship.
