Register by calling 425-283-0549.
These classes follow the Chess4Life curriculum developed by NM Elliott Neff, working from beginner to advanced topics through the six Levels of Pawn, Knight, Bishop, Rook, Queen, and finally King Level. In each class, students review previous material, work on new material, and put into practice what they are learning. In addition, coaches utilize DVD lessons, workbooks and activities to help students qualify for each topic.
What Level is my Child?
Before enrolling in classes, each child takes an Assessment Lesson at Chess4Life, this is a private lesson with a certified Chess4Life coach to determine the knowledge level of your student (Pawn, Knight, Bishop, Rook, Queen, or King) and what topics they understand in that Level. Upon completion of this assessment, you will know what topics your child shows mastery of, as well as what topics need to be worked on, thus making the time in classes more effective. The assessment is $35, scheduling is flexible, and the lesson usually takes up to 45 minutes.
Premium Center Classes at Chess4Life are just $75/month for one class/week or $125/month for two classes/week.
