As part of their registration package, each new member will receive a free 3 month membership to Chesskid.com so that they can learn and practice chess at home. In addition, both returning and new members will receive a chess workbook in order to sharpen their skills at home.
Chess sets will be provided at club, so your child needn't bring one.
