Don’t be intimidated – we all start out at the beginning! In this eight-week class we will focus on the fundamentals of chess. We’ll cover opening strategy, the 5 basic checkmates, and tactics such as Forks, Pins, and Discovered Check. This class will be a balance of chess play and instruction. There will be a tournament with trophies and medals. Students need to come to the first class knowing how to move the pieces. Free lessons on how to move the pieces can be found at www.chesskid.com. Open to students in grades 2-8.
Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
