GREAT MOVES: LEARNING CHESS THROUGH HISTORY
The Sunrise Center for Excellence in Chess is presenting chess instruction that teaches chess along with its historical development on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Sunrise/Dan Pearl branch library. The class is open to all students grades 6-12 and to interested adults. There is no pre-requisite other than a reading level of 5th grade or above. NSCF Senior Instructor Robert McKenzie, will offer an 8-week class featuring lectures, chess problem-solving, fun games and competitive play. (Find out more about the book at www.GreatMovesChess.org.)
Please note: This is a class. You are signing up for 8 classes running from January 29 through March 19, 2019. Please do not sign up if you cannot reasonably make this commitment. We understand sometimes something will happen that changes this, but the classes are built so that there is a progression to the instruction so students actually see improvement in their chess ability and in their understanding of how chess relates to other academics and life activities.
If you just want to play chess as a fun activity, come to the Open Play, offered at the Sunrise Civic Center every Saturday morning from 10 am to 12 noon where all are welcome and no registration is required. There is always an instructor at these sessions. We also have Open Play Chess with instruction at the Village Multipurpose Center from 5:30 to 7:00 pm on Tuesdays for younger students. Thank you.
These classes are free thanks to the generous support of The City of Sunrise.
