Learning Chess   NEW!

There are more possible moves in a chess game than there are atoms in the universe. Though this may be true, the fundamentals of chess are not difficult to learn. In the first week of class you will be introduced to the basic rules of the game including how to castle and how to checkmate your opponent. In the following weeks you will learn to play with purpose in the opening, middlegame, and endgame through class discussion and in-class analysis of student games. You'll learn to read chess notation and we will discuss ways you can continue to study chess on your own. Come and learn with us if you are a beginner interested in beating your friends and family, or if you want to take the first step towards tournament play.
