We are grateful for the Institute for Educational Leadership for providing space to continue our Saturday morning Chess Kids class following the damage to the regular venue at the Elizabeth House. We had fun at the new location this past Saturday, though we hope to be able to return to downtown Silver Spring this coming weekend.
This past Saturday, March 26, 2022 was the final class of our Chess Kids program for 2021-2022. Stay tuned this fall when we open registration again for the 2022-2023 sessions. In the meantime, here are some photos from Chess Kids this spring.
Our Saturday Chess Kids program resumed again this past Saturday, October 23, 2021 at the DC Housing Finance Agency auditorium in the Shaw / U Street neighborhood of Washington, DC.
Chess Kids, which has been operating since the U.S. Chess Center’s founding, is an individualized, highly structured program for students in Grades K – 6 that meets on Saturdays from 10:00 am – 11:30 am. Chess Kids students are placed in groups based on their ability and everyone plays games each week and receives lessons. Through Chess Kids, we make learning chess fun!
