JUNIOR CHESS COACHING
(Adults welcomes as well!)
It`s a New Year and we have something new too offer for the juniors (and any adults that may wish to join in!).
We are offering a new coaching course which hopefully will help bring your chess to new heights. The course will take place once or twice a month (depending on how busy the club is on the night) and each lesson will be repeated to make sure everyone understands it before moving onto the next lesson. The lessons will follow a set course intermixed with special coaching lessons from our best adults and off course our top rated player Master Declan Shafi! (he does not know yet but I will need his help!).
The lessons will be given by me (Ray Noble) using material from training manuals and professional coaches (Maybe I will learn something new!). I am not a teacher but will hopefully be able to pass on some knowledge to all. Juniors will be split into small groups of about the same strength to make the lessons easier on all (including the teacher!)
The course is called “From Novice to Advanced” and will comprise of 8 lessons.
1: Checkmate Patterns
2: Chess Openings
3: Instructive Miniatures
4: The 30 most important Endgame positions
5: How to evaluate a chess position
6: Endgame exercises
7: Ray`s top 10 tips for improvement!
8: Find the killer move.
The first two Thursdays are Club Championship nights so the 1st lesson will probably be Thurs 24th Jan depending on factors?
Your thoughts on the above would be most welcome and any help most appreciated.
