Grades 6-12: DIG USA Chess is partnering with the West Hartford Libraries Teen Department to run a beginner chess program that will practice once a week through Zoom. Students will learn the basics and then gradually learn tactics and strategies. A professional chess coach from DIG USA will teach for half of the class and then students will play each other on Chess.com for the second half of the class. Chess coaches will watch the matches and analyze students' strengths and weaknesses so that they know how to improve every game!
Classes will run weekly for 4 weeks. Please sign up for the entire series using the February 16 date. If you are registering after February 16, please e-mail the Teen Department to be added to the attendance list (if space allows).
