We have received many requests for entry into CCL by players who have shown potential but have not quite reached our criteria for entry. As a result, we decided to develop a Pre-CCL program, a training program designed by the CCL coaching staff, to meet this need. Every benefit of being is CCL in granted all Pre-CCL students but at a lower cost!
Below are the differences between the two programs:
UR – 800 = Pre-CCL
800 – 1000 = either program
over 1000 = CCL
The head of the Pre-CCL program and the primary coach in this program is NM Vladimir Kizov.
Pre-CCL students can use CCL coaches but at the CCL rate.
All coaches are listed on The Coaches page.
