Beginning Chess Group  Classes:

If you would like to be part of a beginner's group for weekly class lessons, You have two options:

1.  Find some friends to join your child and Mr. Garrison.  Groups can be any size.  (the more students, the better the rate per student)

2.  You can join a waiting list, and when there are enough interested students, I will attempt to form a group for weekly class instruction. 

If you are interested in becoming part of a small group of beginners, please send a direct email:

In your email, please include:

  1.  your child's name

  2. age and birthdate

  3. how much experience does your child have, if any?

GENERAL CLASS INFORMATION:

 

How Classes are Structured:

  • Every scheduled class day will be a mix of entertaining instruction and tournament play.

  • All chess classes will focus on traditional chess, however, students will learn and practice other variants as well (such as crazyouse, atomic chess, etc.)

  • Instructor Candidate Master Ray Garrison

Requirements: 

  • Each student will need their own device and a good internet connection.  Each student will need a free account at www.lichess.org 

  • We also recommend each device have a camera but this is not a requirement.

  • Knowledge Requirements:  For chess classes, all students should know the basic rules.  If your child is a true beginner, please email raygarrison@arborchess.com and I will send you some links for interactive turorials designed to easily teach children the basic rules of chess.  (For Chinese/Japanese Chess class, students should be familiar with traditional chess, but they do not need to know the rules of Chinese/Japanese Chess)
