Dear Parents, Kids & All Our Chess Friends!
The Sunday Elite Online Club has helped to prepare our junior students for their upcoming tournaments and matches since 2021.
We work together on areas of strategy, tactics and mindset to build the confidence and skills necessary to compete beyond Chess Rising Stars. To support this development, there are regular guest coaching appearances from Grandmasters.
Each term the Elite Club has 6-10 students. Based on our students’ performance during the previous term, plus our sense of who we feel is tournament-ready, we only offer places in this club by invitation. To date, students from 5 different countries have taken part.
Members of the Elite Club often go on to represent Chess Rising Stars in the Junior Four Nations Chess League Online team competition. Since registering our first team in 2022, we have achieved many successes in the J4NCLO and are already 4-time Divisional champions.
Three Elite Club students reached the Terafinal of the UK Chess Challenge in 2023 and returned as the U10 Girls Champion, plus 3rd and 7th place finishers. To follow this up, we achieved two bronze medals at the LJCC Finals in the U10 Major section.
Registration is open for our other Spring Term Online Chess Clubs here.
