Led by David Mehler, one of five certified Professional Chess Coaches in the United States, with visits from his master and Grandmaster friends, our Sunday Chess program welcomes anyone in grades 7 - 12 for afternoons of practice, lessons, and competition. All levels of players are welcome. Our teachers provide instruction to beginners and help improve the strategy of local experts.
Sometimes we play with students from other places! We have had Internet matches with students from China, Czech Republic, Iceland, Montenegro and Norway. We have hosted teams visiting Washington from a variety of states and we have sent teams to national championships including the World Amateur Team and the SuperNationals. We expect to chaperone teams in 2017-18 to the National High School Championships.
Lessons will be challenging for all players. Students receive instruction in the large group, small groups and individually.
