Some of the points, not fully though, to mentions here under this topic are as follows:
All the students are expected to have their own notebook and pen/pencil and other required stationery items while attending the class.
It is highly advisable for parents or guardians to pick and drop the students on time to/from the class. Please ensure to be at the premise exactly 5 min before the start of the class – not more not less. Also pick your child at the right time so as to prevent the coach from waiting for the parents to arrive.
If the coach is not happy with the student’s progress or behaviour, the coach & Chess Shoots reserves the right to remove the student from the batch.
Parents who aspire for individual attention to their kids to fast track their learning curve or to improve upon certain playing techniques or for any other reasons, we advise to schedule 1-on-1 sessions with the coach at extra cost. Usually ChessShoots discourages individual classes as the group classes are designed appropriately to take care of the learning needs of the kids at their assigned levels.
