Register for After School Program
In effect, we are the ones who ensure that chess makes a good “first impression.” While the overwhelming majority of chess programs may―to varying degrees―do a fine job of teaching the mechanics of the game, strategy, and overall board consciousness, we on the other hand are far more concerned with encouraging life masters than we are chess masters. We do this by teaching children how to apply the lessons of the board to their every day critical decision making.
When a child enters the world of chess, they are entering the “gymnasium of the mind.” As you well know, the refining of a child’s character is a daily challenge, and should you allow us to be a small part of your child’s development. We commit to teaching your child the game of chess and to show them how to apply the valuable lessons of the game to their everyday life.Tier I of our virtual program is a 5-week intensive program and our camps happen over a course of 4 days (plus we have a weekly tournament every Sunday for our club members) designed to immerse and fortify your child in the fundamentals of chess and ChessLife Strategies™, the life skills component of our teachings. Should you maintain your child’s presence in our program and encourage them to complete Tier 1 through 7, we will do our part to ensure that they become confident and proficient chess players and—most importantly—as more measured and reasoning young boys and girls.
- If you are apart of our in-person after school program check-out our general itinerary, and take our “Test Out of Phase 1 Booklet Quiz”, grade it using this link, if your child is able to earn a score of 9 out of 10 they should be considered advanced, if they earn 6-8 out of 10, consider them intermediate, if they earn a score of anything less than 6, consider them beginners. We recommend that all students start off by completing our Phase 1 booklet especially if they are not able to score 90% or better on our Test Out of Phase 1 Quiz.
- If you are interested in registering for one of our virtual programs and are not sure how to determine whether your child should be placed in beginner, intermediate or advanced, leave it to us. We have thorough virtual evaluation systems to help us determine the level of mastery that each child has reached.
