Term 2 Coaching

With schools moving to remote learning in many cases and Gardiner Chess unable to provide regular coaching services at the school, we have made the decision to move online. Whilst the Queensland Government has indicated 5 weeks of online learning at this stage, we have made the decision to present all of our term 2 lessons online. Fingers crossed we can get back to normal in term 3!

How it Works:

Coaches will send a ZOOM link prior to the lesson time (this may be between 5 and 15 minutes). Students should then accept the meeting link where they will then be able to see the coaches screen which will be shared from their computer. Coaches will be using ZOOM to communicate, whilst utilising Chessbase / Lichess.com to show the lesson material. Students are strongly encouraged to get onto Chesskid.com between coaching sessions to continue their learning and putting their lessons into practice.

Lessons will be limited to 10 students.

Lesson Levels:

  • Pawns – New to chess this year, or late last year. Have not played interschool, or have played in C/D grades.
  • Knights – Players rated up to QJ550. Have played in interschool events in B grade or maybe even A grade.
  • Bishops – QJ550 – QJ700.
  • Rooks – QJ700 – QJ1000.

Players above QJ1000 will likely already have a private chess coach working with them. If you would like to discuss options (we are happy to do group lessons too!), please contact us via email.


The cost for term 2 coaching will be $48.00.
