At Lower Bucks Chess Academy, we are dedicated to providing a safe and educational environment for children to learn and enjoy the game of chess.
Playing chess regularly is known to improve memory, concentration, reading skills, problem solving skills and creativity skills. We offer a full range of sessions for boys and girls. The students are grouped together according to their age and ability.
The beginner class teaches the basics of chess and is geared toward children age 10 and under. Topics discussed include: how to move the pieces, basic tactics, fundamentals of opening theory, fundamentals of endgame play and much more. There will be structured lessons along with supervised play during the class. The sessions run for eight consecutive weeks. The class meets on Wednesday's between 7 PM to 8:30 PM.
The Advanced Sessions are for students who have been playing chess for an extended period of time and have a solid understanding of the game’s principles. Advanced players will study the finer elements of chess including difficult endgames and specific openings. Students will study high-level games in order to improve their skills. This session meets on Wednesday's from 7 PM to 8:30 PM for 8 weeks. These sessions include tournament game review with a master level coach.
