Chess is fun for all ages and exercises the brain. The student will learn the basics of the game and beyond including opening theory, middle game tactics, and endgame patterns. Chess also teaches life skills – problem solving, decision-making, coping, patience, concentration, discipline in thinking and behavior – and provides an intellectual foundation that will serve the student well in all they pursue. All levels welcome. Registration flyer is attached!  (Flyer)

Sincerely,

Vic Wight
