Online Chess Teaching

As a response to the Covid-19 pandemic and tough government regulations, including forced lockdowns, RJCC ran for four terms, from Summer 2020 until Summer 2021, almost solely online. We will continue providing online services, even though we have now been able to move back to face to face service provision. Details of our online services can be found here.
