Cubs : for anyone aged 8 – ten and a half looking for adventure and to master new skills

The Benefits of Joining the Scouts

There are several benefits to joining the Parkside Yards Scouts that often can’t be gained from school alone; here are just a few…

  • You meet new people and make new friends
  • Your self confidence grows by learning new skills
  • Develop a sense of achievement as you work towards getting the different badges
  • Reap the rewards from working as a team
  • Learn how to make decisions while having to think about other people’s points of view.

Do your children want to learn how to play chess? Enrol them in the Southall Junior Chess Club and watch them develop their creative thinking skills.

Thursdays

6 – 7.30pm

10 sessions starting 12 October

Through chess, we learn how to analyze a situation by focusing on important factors and by eliminating distractions. We learn to devise creative solutions and put a plan into action. During the session we cover the following topics

  • Opening
  • Tactics
  • Endgame Study

We practise games and conduct game analysis.

The club is suitable for anyone aged between 6 and 15.

We welcome all levels.

The club is led by Sainbayar Tserendorj, the founder of London Chess Congress (LCC). LCC are London based chess organisers whose mission is to provide quality chess experiences at all levels. They use and promote The International Chess Federation (FIDE) titles starting at CM, WCM all the way to the top, Grand Master.
