New Class Schedules and Tournaments!
Due to the high demand for our intermediate classes and the increasing number of students moving up to our advanced level, we will now offer an additional advanced and intermediate class to our schedule. Our new location will allow for multiple classes to be taught simultaneously, as well as more space for separate tournament play. We hope that this makes finding a convenient class time easier for you as well as offers more make-up class options.
The new intermediate class will meet Fridays from 6-7pm. We will also hold kids quads on the following Fridays. Students who want to make Friday chess day are encouraged to come to the kids quads, followed by the intermediate class from 6-7 pm, and then continue with league play.
We have also added an advanced class on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30pm. Those students will be able to stay for Wednesdays league night at 7:30pm. We hope that these additions will make it easier and more convenient for students to continue to improve.
Lastly, we have changed the 12:30-2pm Saturday advanced class to 10:30-12pm. This will give those students the opportunity to compete in kids quads on Saturdays at 12:15.
