These training sessions are aimed at players wishing to play for Hertfordshire in the EPSCA Inter-Association Team Competitions (under-9, under-11 & under-11 girls).

Each session will comprise a mixture of lectures and tournament games in which players will be assigned to groups corresponding to their playing level:

  • Foundation – new players with limited tournament experience,
  • Intermediate – typically, below ECF grade 80,
  • Advanced

Players will be encouraged to record their moves so that chess coach, IM Ravi Kumar, can give feedback on their play and make suggestions as to how they may improve.

The fee is £10 per session, which should be payable to the coach on the day.   If you wish to attend email HSCA chairman, Michael Flatt, (hsca@gmx.com) so that we can be sure to accommodate everyone.
