This program is designed to challenge older students who are new to the game of chess. Through a variety of resources your student will learn all of the concepts taught in our “A Knight’s First Moves” program as well as much more.

This will leave the student with a foundation of patterns that will be used for the rest of their learning. Along with that the older students will master more tactics and strategic ideas than our younger students. This program will challenge and engage our older students.
