This course is designed to teach chess to children who have no knowledge of the game.  Students will learn pawn and piece movements as well as the fundamentals of the beginning, the middle and the end game.  Students will always touch and use equipment. Part of the class will be board demonstrations and part practical interaction.

This class is for kids who are already playing in rated tournaments or are ready to play. The focus will be on building an opening repertoire, studying master games, and learning from ones' mistakes.
