Elite Chess/Soccer Clinic
Join Elite Chess for our most exciting, most creative, event of the year!
This winter break, we are once again teaming up with one of the best soccer coaches in the state, Jim Konrad, to put on a chess/soccer clinic! Let's get our kids out from behind their computer screens and train their minds and bodies at the same time. Space is definitely limited and we expect the clinic to sell out. Register soon if interested!
Who: The clinic is for 1st-8th grade students. All levels of chess and soccer are welcome. If your child has never played chess or soccer before, we will teach them. If your child is an Elite chess or soccer player already, we will push them.
What: A two day, chess/soccer clinic over winter break. Students will be paired with chess and soccer players of their same age/ability level. Soccer players will be playing futsal, which is a fast paced 5 v 5 form of indoor soccer.
Where: Naperville North High School: 899 N. Mill Street, Naperville, IL
When: January 2-3, 2019 from 1:30-5:30pm each day.
Fee for the two-day clinic is $80 in the form of cash or check. Register online and pay on the first day. Make checks payable to “Elite Chess”.
