A. General Considerations

These classes are for kids under the age of 14.

Students that are new to chess should take the entire 3-week course. 

Below are the topics covered in this course. Lots of sample chess positions/puzzles are reviewed and this is very helpful to learning.

B. Topics Covered

iBeginner Chess for Kids, Weeks #1 – 3

The first two weeks focus on: the rules of chess including piece movement, castling and other special moves; piece value; elementary mates; and good vs. bad opening moves.

The last week builds on the introduction to chess by taking the student through a few useful technical topics at a basic level.
