Class Description:

Learn chess using the step-by-step approach developed by Championship Chess. As each piece is introduced, students play pre-chess games starting with Pawns then the Queen, Rooks, Bishops and Knights. As the King is introduced, students learn about check, checkmate, stalemate and all the special moves of chess and are ready to play full games. Students who play full games are ready to improve chess skills through the introduction and practice of openings and endgames. Students learn open, active games that apply basic chess tactics and improve overall strategy and problem solving.

 

Chess is more than a game it develops problem solving skills, analytical thinking and the ability to weigh options, analyze concretely and think ahead.
