Become a Chess Pro: Intermediate Level 1 (for Ages 13 & Up)
CENTRAL NY CHESS, INC.
Learn to Checkmate Early and Often with these Advanced Strategies, in Just 8 Weeks! #builder
Intermediate - Advanced Level
This class is for young learners with strong previous experience with chess (such as completing our Beginner course). We'll briefly review the basics of the game, and then spend most of the semester building upon that foundation with proven strategies used by advanced players, including early-game checkmate techniques. Each week's lesson starts with about 30 minutes of explanation and discussion, followed by, for the remaining duration of each class, virtual chess games between the...
By the end of this course, students will have a competitive edge in the game of chess, with a greater understanding of the game and greater confidence in themselves than they began with. They will also leave with a better understanding of how competitive chess tournaments are structured, and will feel prepared to compete and win against peers of their age and skill levels.
Assessments OfferedAll students who complete the course will be sent a certificate of completion as well as award ribbons conferred for their placement in the in-class tournament. Report cards will also be made available to parents by request, at any time during or at the end of the semester, detailing their child's progress.
1 file available upon enrollmentWe organize all of our virtual chess games on ChessKid.com; each student, during their enrollment in this class, will be provided by us a Gold Membership to ChessKid (a $20 value). We believe that this is the safest and most comprehensive learning tool we can use to facilitate our in-class virtual games. Students are encouraged (but not required) to use this website for any practice games that they play outside of class also, so that their progress can be tracked and included in the Report Cards provided to parents; this would also assist our instructors in identifying how best to coach each student on concepts that they may be struggling with. After the end of the semester, students not continuing into one of our more advanced courses will still have limited access to ChessKid to play virtual games at their leisure, but their archived game history will eventually disappear.
This class uses the external website ChessKid to facilitate online chess games between classmates. ChessKid is 100% committed to safety, and meets Outschool's standards for Safety and Privacy ONLY FOR LEARNERS AGE 13 AND OLDER. If you are enrolling your child in this class, you are identifying your child as age 13 or older, and Central NY Chess will take no further steps to confirm your child's age. If your child does not already have a ChessKid account, we will create one for them, and can provide parental administrative access to that account at any time upon your request.
