Our second program is on Saturday August 18th & Sunday August 19th!
This two day program is for children grades 5-7. Part of the Discovery Series.
In this two-day program, participants are exposed to the imaginative and logical sides of the game. On the first day, participants review basic rules and classical strategies. Participants will be able to play each other in slow, strategic games, and also compete in fast-paced contests where a winner is decided within seconds. Play Siamese (team) chess; solve fascinating chess problems using geometry and logic; and play a simultaneous exhibition against a chess master with the CTY participants outnumbering him 20 to 1. The second day includes an actual tournament where players have an opportunity to practice their skills and face opponents of the same ability level. Students who complete the session will be eligible for participation in official chess tournaments and a national ranking. Instruction is provided by award-winning chess teachers, including certified expert and master players ranked by the United States Chess Federation.
