Van Riebeeckpark Primary Chess


We use an third party coach namely Elrich Grootboom. In each age group namely 0/13, 0/11 and 0/9, 7 learners will be selected to participate in the league. (No. 7 is then the reserve) Two Super 12 teams, a Junior and Senior team will be selected, each consisting of ten players plus a reserve. Names are faxed to the League and Super 12 ahead of time and may not be changed.
