thinkCHESS is excited to provide students with the opportunity to learn the game of chess in the evening at The Boardroom. Each week our coaches work with students to impart knowledge that ranges from the rules of the game, etiquette of play, understanding chess position, tactics, and strategic planning. Each lesson is divided into lecture and practice periods, with students exercising their new skills with their fellow classmates. We provide support beyond the classroom by allowing the students to access an online platform that lets them review key lessons, watch chess videos, play chess against the computer and classmates, and participate in tournaments. The platform has built in security measures to ensure the safety of the students and to limit any possible problems. After each lesson, students sufficiently skilled are offered the opportunity to participate in a ladder tournament with their classmates, playing one rated game per week. Free play until 8:30 PM. Additional games may be played online. Let’s play chess together.
When: Fridays from 6:30 PM until about 8:30 PM. Lesson is over by 6:50, Timed Game until 7:45, Free Play until 8:30.
