The "Adult Learner Series" is a form of adult meetup where instructors are on hand to help teach the fundamental basics of chess.


Material will be divided into the following categories:

Level I: Participants have no real prior knowledge of chess. Will learn how to play a legal games of chess, understand how to set up a board, how to move all pieces, and the differences between check, checkmate, and stalemate.


Level II: Participants know how the pieces move, but no major understanding of tactics or strategies. By the end of Level II participants will have the knowledge and confidence to play in their first tournament game.

Adults are asked to attend as many classes as they can. 

New participants may join any week. Our instructors will do their best to accommodate all levels.


End of Course Goals: 

We intend to conduct this meeting as long as there are adults willing to learn.

Should participants want to take their game to the next level, they may register with the US Chess Federation and begin to play in tournaments.


First visit is free then participants are asked to join the Center
