With the generous support of SPLC and the Parents & Friends Committee, the first junior chess club to operate in the Indooroopilly area for over 15 years has been going strong for 3 years!


Nik Stawski (FIDE Master & Instructor), the SPLC AIC chess coach for the last 5 years and a coach with over 20 years of experience coaching in Queensland & NSW schools, is the main coach and organiser at this exciting new club. Other top Queensland players are working for this club, helping students to be the best that they can be at this ancient, noble and mind-expanding game. The club hosts tournaments of various styles, from longer, more serious games to rapid and blitz timed games. From puzzle nights to transfer (a.k.a. “chess doubles”) competitions. From blindfold chess demonstrations to simultaneous exhibitions by the occasional visiting master or grandmaster. There are prizes presented regularly as part of these various activities. Students will have an opportunity to gain and improve their official Queensland Junior Chess Rating and will also regularly receive coaching material that they can train with at home.
