DSM Chess Beginner Class

4:00 - 4:50pm
Led by Jim Freerksen

The beginner course is for players who have little to no chess experience. In the course they will learn unique rules of the game, basic checkmates, avoiding stalemate, basic tactics, general opening principles, and capturing hanging pieces. This class will help beginning chess players understand the goals and strategy of the game, so they can make moves with purpose. If they do not already have an account, we will provide a Gold ChessKid.com membership for each student.

An understanding of how the pieces move is not required.


Cost is $150, and $25 off for each additional student from the same family.
