When chess club operations return to normal…

We offer chess classes weekly for all students in grades K-12th. Adult instructions are offered in private lessons only. See who teaches the classes.

From beginners to nationally ranked juniors, ChessPalace classes offer instructions for players to improve their chess skills. General classes are offered 3 times a week. Sign ups are available quarterly or yearly.

Activities include practice games, problem solving tactics, endgame and middlegame study, and master game analysis.

Our chess club also offers chess camps in the summer.
