THE NATURE OF OUR IN-PERSON CLASSES
Annex Chess Club (ACC) has in-person chess classes running most Monday nights downstairs at 918 Bathurst Centre. We have separate courses for kids and adults, organized into a series of either 4 or 8 continuously run classes. Students may currently take a drop-in class from these courses at any time, on a pay-as-you-go basis. This allows the student the flexibility to quickly assess the content and whether it's a good fit for them.
We have published a schedule of our 2023 in-person courses/classes.
Course content is generally the same for kids and adults, though the pace of progress and depth of material within a course may vary depending on the relevant mix of students’ ages, abilities and experiences. Classes involve a mix of lecture, discussion, analysis and problem-solving. Practice games are also encouraged when time permits. Homework is sometimes given.
Students may enter our chess courses in any week with few exceptions by purchasing classes on an à-la-cart basis. This is permitted because the course material is often modular and additive, and not necessarily sequential. For absolute beginners, the entire 4 weeks beginner course should be taken. For those returning to chess after an absence, they may jump into week #3 of the beginner classes with the Instructor’s permission. Intermediate classes offer greater flexibility. The content of some advanced classes is sequential and, accordingly, a discussion with the Instructor is a good idea before trying to enter mid-way through or to skip certain topics.
Discounts: ACC members with an active ACC Full membership receive a 15% discount. Those with an active ACC Casual membership receive a 10% discount. Currently, there is also a 20% discount for ACC advanced online classes with either membership.
