Q: What's the difference between the Weekend Clubs and the BAC Teams?
A: The clubs are more casual, fun atmosphere and attendance can be on an ad-hoc basis by purchasing a drop-in fee. Teams need commitments and consistent attendance, and will be focused on improvement in all areas of chess.
Q: Can we try out the class? Do you offer a first try-out class?
A: No, we do not offer try-out classes. You can register your child for 1 month , and if your child decides to not continue, you simply do not register your child for the next month.
Q: What is expected from the Team members?
A: Consistent attendance and team commitment. Also recommended to spend 10+ hours/week on chess at home.
Q: Is there a maximum number of team members for each team?
A: We provide a second coach if the number of Team members in the Team is larger than 12.
Questions? Please email email@example.com
