Junior & Youth Programs
Please note: Our programs have been disrupted because the Swinburne campus is not currently available for our Junior Club. The following arrangements are in place, but please check our home page for notifications about any disruptions due to the Covid-19 epidemic.
Junior membership allows free participation in our Junior and Youth Programs, and also in the Croydon Junior Open held during the first term school holidays.
These programs consist of weekly sessions during school terms.
Each session usually involves 15-30min coaching followed by a tournament game.
Youth Club at Croydon RSL 6:15pm - 7:15pm Tuesday
- for teenagers (13+) and stronger juniors
Junior Club at Croydon RSL 6:15pm - 7:15pm Thursday
- for juniors aged 5 to 12+
Please see here for more details (Note: venue & times may no longer correct on this document due to Covid restrictions)
Juniors may also participate in any of our Senior Club events by paying the member's entry fee.
-- Croydon RSL
--- Thursdays 7:40pm to 11:00pm.
While Club membership allows participation in our Senior Program, there are small additional fees for entry into each tournament. If you only only intend to enter one or two tournaments then you may be better off paying the non-member entry fee rather than joining and paying members fees.
-- 5 or 6 Classic rated tournaments each year
-- 60min/30s time control
-- 7:45pm starting time for tournament games
Members entry fees range from $10-$25
depending on number of rounds (5 to 7)
and whether cash prizes are offered.

-- All games finish by 9:30pm
-- Entry fee $10* for 7 round events (club rated)
