Lessons are a great way to learn the skills necessary to play a game of chess such as how to move the pieces, capturing, checking, and checkmating.  Teaching methods include lectures, practice games, and working through chess puzzles.

Our chess club also offers chess camps and one-time introductory class (piece names and rules) for kids and adults.
