In response to the situation with COVID-19 we are continuing to offer our chess lessons online. Sadly, we are unable to provide physical chess camps this Summer. Therefore, we hope these lessons will allow your children to continue learning chess with our experienced and dedicated teachers. See below for information regarding registration.
Please note that if you have a credit with Chess'n Math Association it will be applied to your registration. You only have to indicate in the comment section, to which activity your child was registered when you fill out the online form.
As of now, you can enroll your children in one of our four week online chess lessons which will start the week of July 6th. See details below. Please note that a minimum number of registrations will be required to confirm a time slot. If the time slot you have chosen is not available, we will suggest alternative time slots that you can choose from.
The lessons will be 60 minutes long (5-10 minutes to connect and 45-50 minutes of lesson). There will be one lesson per week at the time slot selected for 4 weeks. Four weeks in July and then four weeks in August. Lessons will also include one organized tournament with players registered in the lessons every Friday at 11 am.
