Advanced training under the direction of Vincent Riff

In the winter semester 2023 we offer online training 55 minutes each Tuesday between 18.30-20.30.  If necessary and demand, further groups may be set up.

The cost per semester of weekly online training with Vincent Riff is 700 CHF. There is no sibling discount due to limited places.

Children who have additional training with Chess4Kids benefit from a reduced rate of 450 CHF instead of 700 CHF.

For this weekly training, the children / parents are part of a Whatsapp group and receive weekly homework supervision, support with exercises, games, etc. by Vincent.

The price also includes biweekly online tournaments that Vincent organizes and accompanies.

Additional online trainings to prepare for events and tournaments can be arranged with the trainer and are not included in the price.

In case of occasional unforeseen absences of Vince, he provides a qualified replacement coach.

Winter Semester 2023/24

Starting in the winter semester, Vincent will be here for an additional week per month, offering advanced on-site training in each branch. The days and times will be communicated as needed.

Year 2024

In 2024, Vincent will come to Switzerland and so we can further expand the range of tournament support and advanced courses and camps with him at Chess4kids.

Interested parents can contact Vincent directly at

We are very happy about the cooperation and welcome Vincent warmly!
