Chelmsford Junior Chess Club exists to give junior chess players in Chelmsford of all ages and strengths the chance to play and learn chess in a fun and safe environment. Players will have the chance to make new chess-playing friends while getting some coaching to guide them on their chess path.
The blog exists to promote Chelmsford Junior Chess Club in particular and junior chess in Chelmsford and Essex in general.
On Sunday 11th September will be the first Brentwood
Train and Play. This is an exciting new chess event I’m organising with IM
Richard Pert and will combine coaching sessions aimed at players of different standards
and rated match play against opponents of similar standard. There is a strong
CJCC flavour to the day with fellow CJCC parent (and former Essex Champion) Russell
White part of the coaching team.
Richard and I have spent a fair amount of time deciding on
the format and putting the day together and plan to run a series of these
events in the future. The Essex Junior Chess Association are also planning a
series of coaching events which I’m also involved with. Details of these will
appear at www.ejca.co.uk
Also on the EJCA website is the entry from to the first of
the Grand Prix tournaments to be held in Chelmsford
on 8th October.
Next week (16th) CJCC will meet for mid-holiday chess
and I’m running an invitational coaching morning on Saturday 20th.
