The lecture/simul alone is $35; each day for the clinic is $75; two days of the clinic is $125; all three is $150.

Players who attended our 2014 classes quickly cashed-in on the knowledge learned from GM Henley: Truman Hoang won the 2015 National Junior High Championship (K-8) & Florida State Championship (K-8). Williams IB Middle Magnet School won the 2015 Florida State Championship. Two weeks after our classes, Lixin Zheng (then rated 1681) defeated an expert rated 2039, using the very same c3 Sicilian line Henley taught him. Lixin has skyrocketed with the lessons he has learned from our classes & tournaments, now rated 1741, after starting 2014 at 1416. He was rated 792 in 2013.

At the Florida State Scholastic Championship 2015, Truman won 1st place individual K-8.
Williams IB Middle Magnet School won 1st place team K-8.
