Blackwell Elementary School Chess Class

All About Chess is excited to be back this year at Blackwell Elementary School! We will be running the class online to begin but will see how things go throughout the year. Coaches Tim Campbell and Brad Stensland will be teaming up again this year to continue this strong chess program. We had a great year last year and we look forward to continuing it again this year. A typical class has a weekly lesson on a particular topic, then depending on the week students play practice games against their peers working on what they have been learning, fun puzzles, check mate patterns and online tournaments. Sportsmanship is stressed throughout. A continual theme is thinking about our actions before we make them and making good choices. Also included in your registration is a one year subscription to, a wonderful teaching tool that will allow students to practice ideas learned in class during the rest of the week! Kindergartners: To be ready for chess, your kindergartner should be able to do simple math and some reading and writing. I am offering an 8-week trial for $88 (for Kindergartners only). Email me if you would like to do the trial option. If your child does not know how to move the pieces please let me know and I will set up a time before class to help teach the pieces. 

Two options to begin. If we go back to in person classes we will all need to move to the 8am before school class. If that is an issue I can work with you.
