2:00pm - 3:00pm​

Coach: Grandmaster (GM) Daniel Naroditsky

GM Naroditsky is the highest rated player and coach in the Southeast. The CCCSA offers these classes to provide our competitive students with the highest levels of instruction posssible.

Student Expectations: 

Attend the classes scheduled. Submit completed homework each class. Participate in at least one rated tournament every month.


All classes are typically conducted over an 6 week period, where students come

once per week.


Classes are always conducted in class sizes at or less than a 10:1

student/teacher ratio. Most classes have between 6-8 students.


Space limited to first 10 that apply to each class.


End of Course Goals: 

Students will build upon their knowledge to increase their performance in competition.

After the fundamental basics are learned, chess can be a long learning process. Students that attend these classes are more likely to progress competitively than others.

Unlike the Beginner and Intermediate courses, the Master Class courses only allow progression based on rating improvement. Students will not progress to the next class until their rating reaches the threshold.


Students who sign up for more than one session will not be getting a repeat of what they have learned but rather continue building the skills needed to reach the next rating level.
