Tue, 20-NovTraining days: Professional Training Sessions Offered by BJCA to all ability groups

Due to feedback from parents, BJCA is pleased to announce a schedule of professionally-led training sessions for the 2012-13 season.

Sessions have been arranged for 8/12/12, 2/2/13 and 2/3/13. At each session different groups will be led according to ability range. A FIDE senior trainer will be with us for all 3 sessions, and a GM may even take a group on 2/2/13 if sufficient interest is expressed amongst older players.

Please note that these sessions can only go ahead if sufficient interest is registered on the enclosed form so that BJCA can understand whether these can be run on a cost neutral basis. If you are interested in supporting this initiative, please return the form to .
