Descriptions

Beginner I (Rating: 100 - 200)

This is a perfect class for students starting from scratch. In this class students will learn the movements of all the chess pieces as well as some basic chess concepts such as castling, check, checkmate, and stalemate. By the end of the class students should be able to confidently move pieces, castle and understand the basic difference between check, checkmate, and stalemate.

Beginner II (Rating: 150 - 300)

This class will pick up where Beginner 1 left off. Students will review the concepts of check, checkmate, and stalemate, then move on to more advanced concepts such as basic types of checkmates (i.e. Ladder Checkmate). Students will also learn basic tactics and opening principles. Perfect for students who know how the pieces move, but nothing else.

Intermediate I (Rating: 200 - 400)

This class will pick up where Beginner 2 left off. Students will review the concepts learned in Beginner 2 and begin to learn more types of tactics, such as the Double Check and Discovered Attack.

Students who successfully complete this class will be given a certificate of tournament readiness and will be given endorsement to participate in rated play.

Master Class (Rating: 500 - 1000)

This class is designed for advanced students looking to take their game to a higher level. It will continue where Intermediate 2 left off, and introduce more middlegame concepts such as attack & defense, calculation, and advanced tactics. Students will also learn deeper opening and endgame strategies.
