We welcome chess players of all levels, from beginner to advanced. Every live session will include a chess lesson and an opportunity for practice play, a fun way to practice skills learned in the lessons and to prepare for tournament chess. We will conduct chess school through Zoom using a virtual chessboard. You must have Zoom access to participate. After the half-hour lesson, we encourage your child to stay and play the practice games and tournaments. Practice games are optional until your child is ready.
