As of now you can enroll your children in our online chess lessons. See details below. Please note that a minimum number of registrations will be required to confirm a time slot. If the time slot you have chosen is not available, we will offer you other time slots that are.

You can renew your registration every 4 weeks, or, until the current situation changes.
