Chess For Everyone!

ACC Advanced Chess (in-person)


Course Title: “Advanced Chess Workshop for Kids (Endgames)“

This is an 8-class, in-person chess course, taught by ACC Instructor, FIDE Master (FM) Michael Humphreys, in which students learn various concepts and principles of endgames. These Kids classes are 1.5 hrs. in length and begin at 6:00 PM most Mondays. Classes may be purchased and taken on an a-la-carte basis with the instructor's permission. 

General Considerations

An ELO rating of 1000+ is generally a suitable range for students attending this course. However, the depth of the content for this course may be adjusted upwards or downwards to fit the average level of the students attending.

Topics for each successive 8-week iteration of these classes will vary, so there is always new content for advanced students to master should they wish to take the course again.
