Philadelphia 9Queens Academy dates

November 4, 2009

Alisa Melekhina plays against a girl from the first 9queens Academy of the schoolyear.

For ladies who live in Philadelphia, I am happy to announce that thanks to ASAP, the After Schools Activities Partnerships, this year’s Philadelphia 9Queens Academy program has been expanded and enhanced. Two additional sessions have been added and the initiative will include an all day end of the year tournament. Last but not least, 18-year-old Alisa Melekhina, who won a gold medal in China, has joined the teaching staff.   Our first session was on October 17, just after the US Women’s Championship concluded so we went over some basic tactics from the tournament. The remaining 9Queens Academy dates are listed below.Look for updates on this blog about the various academies and email for more information or to sign up.


Location: Story Hour Room (Children’s Department on the ground floor), Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine St. 19103
Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm (unless otherwise noted)
