Led by Growing Minds Chess Academy, this class is ideal for students who have mastered piece movement and the basic rules of chess, and are interested in competitive chess but not yet ready for the team. Students will be prepared for the chess team by learning tournament strategy, approaching different types of players, time management and use of chess clocks, how and when to notate, understanding how to play as a team, chess tournament etiquette, and how to focus before and after each match and outcome. Topics will include checkmate patterns, tactical motifs and chess miniatures. Critical thinking skills and pattern recognition will be developed.


Students in grades K-12 are welcome to join this class after meeting with a Chess coach. Once student has been invited to join the Intro to Chess Team, you can register below.
