Chess classes are great for kids!

Teachers (see this 2012 study) find that kids who participate in chess show improved confidence and self-assurance. For parents, it’s a real pleasure to see your child so engaged in the game – and it’s truly amazing how quickly they pick up new skills.

At Annex Chess Club, we’ve got kids’ chess classes every Monday night!

Our final 7-week session before summer break started April 28 – but it’s not too late to join! Check current schedules.

You’re never too old to learn chess or improve your game! Artiom Samsonkin teaches a Beginner/Intermediate adult group from 8:00 to 9:00 pm.
