CHESS CLUB - Our chess club focuses mainly on the basic rules, tactics and general strategies of the game. Children learn the piece movements, piece values and most importantly to make decisions based on those factors. Depending on the group experience we could go far beyond the basics by introducing middle game and endgame theory. We also identify checkmate patterns and tactics like forks, pins, skewers, double checks, decoys, etc. Children are also exposed to chess notation, chess etiquette and general sportsmanship guidelines.
Policies for After School Clubs
This fall there will be NO makeups even if a club has to be cancelled due to school closing, bad weather or an instructor canceling.
Students must be picked up on time at the scheduled end of the club by an adult listed on their registration form with an ID. If a student is picked up late more than twice they will be removed from the club and no refund will be granted.
If there is a discipline issue during a club the instructor will be responsible for handling the situation and communicating with the parents. For the first incident, the instructor may choose to ask the student to sit out for the remainder of the session (depending on the severity) and the parent will be informed. With the second incident, the student will be asked to miss one session of the club. The third incident will result in dismissal.
