BayAreaChess' teams have started in August 2015 by inviting some of the Bay Area's most dedicated scholastic players with the mission to provide them with a format of training where they can elevate their chess to the next level. We do this by offering strong training with title player coaches combined with a team oriented method of training and support that will give these young players a valuable experiene they can appoly to both their chess and to their personal lives.
This is a team for players with 1000+ rating.
