BAC Clubs are back! 1 hour casual Learning + Games in a comfortable online atmosphere! Clubs will contain any combination of lessons, group activities or puzzles/demonstrations, and sprinkled with paired play or practice tournaments (coach discretion) in our new low-ratio Online format!
Holiday Schedule: All Clubs will be Closed November 25-29 and December 23-30.
1) Register here (left side of the page) and make the single-class payment to join ($20).
2) The Zoom Link is included above, we email the weekly password to registrants as the date approaches.
3) If using a previously purchased Bundle-Class, Register only by contacting Jason@bayareachess.com (cc Enrich@bayareachess.com) and we will deduct from your total and manually add you.(See bottom)
4) Make sure you are with us on ChessKid.com for Pairing (below). Regular accounts are free!
Difficulty Levels: This Club is best suited for LEVEL 3 (Intermediate)
Clubs use our Default Level system as below:
Level 1: Absolute Beginners (Needs help with the piece movement and unable to Checkmate)
Level 2: Beginner Level (Usually under a year of chess or below 400 rating)
Level 3: Intermediate (A few Years of Chess or under 900 rating)
Level 4: Advanced (Tournament Players, 900-1300 rating). It is preferred that Absolute beginners join us for Level 1 courses before attending Clubs, as club lessons will expect all players to know basic piece movement. Higher Rated players are encouraged to look into TEAM classes or Level 5 Fall Courses.

A note about Bundles for those that had them prior to closures:
While new bundles are not currently for sale, we have incorporated the Bundle program so that you may use those pending credits for online drop-in classes. We have converted your bundles into a dollar amount instead of a classes-remaining format, so that you have a total credit ($) available. This is to account for some old clubs being $30 or $40, and new clubs being $20. The 'extra class' in your bundle has been added to the value, you did not lose it ;)
If you would like to use from your pool of funds for a drop-in club (Wednesday, Saturday-AM, Saturday-PM or Sunday), simply email your request to Enrich@bayareachess AND to jason@bayareachess (Coach Jason is the new Online Club coordinator and will be in charge of managing your credits).
Make sure you provide which of the 4 time-slots it will be for (and note that Saturday has two times). We will handle the rest! We will also let you know when your account reaches the point where only 1-session remains, and we will refund you any change that might be left over after they are depleted.
