Our group lessons are fun, interactive and informative and are a great way for students to practice their skills and socialize with players at the same level within a small group.
We offer various levels, from complete beginners to advanced players who play competitively. Each lesson consist of a learning segment, where the coach will teach something new, followed by practical application of what has been taught (exercises, practice games etc).
We generally offer 3 semesters during the year: Fall (Sept - Dec), Winter (Jan - Mar), Spring (April - June)
We are starting our Fall Semester in September/October 2023. Classes will run for 10 weeks and all times are in MST.

During the registration process please provide us information about your child (like how many years of experience, if they play online, what their rating is etc). If necessary, we will schedule an assessment prior to joining a group.
Lessons & Method:
The lessons will take place via ZOOM + lichess online chess platform. Each participant will receive detailed instructions prior to the start of the lessons and full support from the coach during it.

In addition to the lessons, each student will be able to join our tournaments, where they will be able to practice what they've learnt and compete in a friendly environment.
