A Fun and Challenging Hobby: Discover the Joys of Chess at the Chess Club!

Welcome to the Flying Minds Chess Club, a community of young chess players who are passionate about the game! Our club is designed for children who are looking to develop their chess skills, meet new friends and have fun while doing it.


At the Flying Minds, we offer a supportive and inclusive environment where young players can learn and grow. Our experienced coaches are dedicated to helping each child develop their skills through personalized training, game analysis and friendly competition.



Learning the basics. How do my pieces move and where are they strongest/weakest? What are the special moves and how do I promote? How do I close out a game and many more questions.


This is where the real fun begins! At this stage we learn about the most common endgames and tactics as well as basic opening theory. The most frequent tricks and traps are also introduced here. As a bonus we also practice chess notation and how to solve puzzles.



Refine your skills by solving more difficult puzzles and learning your first opening. Start thinking many moves ahead and preparing your pieces early on for a much later attack. We start to use the tactics and traps we learned as an intermediate player every game and develop a strategy!

Pattern recognition skills

Personal growth

Strategic thinking





All players are welcome

Our club caters to children of all levels, from beginners to advanced players. We offer a range of programs that are tailored to the needs and interests of each child, including group lessons, individual coaching, and regular tournaments.


We believe that chess is more than just a game, it's a valuable tool for developing skills that will benefit children throughout their lives. Chess helps children develop critical thinking skills, improve their concentration, and boost their confidence and self-esteem.


Whether your child is looking to improve their skills, make new friends or just have fun, the Junior Chess Club is the perfect place for them to do it. Join us today and give your child the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive through the game of chess!
