Cincinnati Scholastic Chess has been involved in organizing two clinics at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Kenwood. There is no guarantee that these clinics will be held every year, but when they will be held, details will be posted in the "Coming Event" section of our home page. For more information, contact Doug Dysart at 513-484-3768 (mobile),

Queen City Classic Prep Clinic

This clinically is typically conducted on a weekday evening for several weeks during January and February to help players prepare for the Queen City Classic tournament that is usually held in March. Of course, players can take advantage of the clinic without playing in the QCC.

Summer Chess Camps

Week-long chess camps are held during the summer during one or more weeks. These camps are structured so that the morning session is more elemental and the afternoon session is more advanced. Players may participate in both morning and afternoon sessions if they choose.
