Description

JHS Fall Chess Camp is the perfect way to introduce chess to new players, deepen an understanding of the game for experienced players, or offer intensive instruction for aspiring chess masters. Instructors provide daily lessons, puzzles, and play to help guide students through each session.

Instruction offers a solid basic foundation, emphasizing the fundamental skills needed to begin a lifetime of learning in chess, including:

  • Proper piece and board set-up

  • Algebraic Notation (Chess Language)

  • Basic Principles of Play

Coaches then provide expert instruction building on these skills and covering more advanced ideas, including:

  • Tactics

  • Strategy

  • Middlegame Planning

  • Endgame Technique

The camp provides opportunities to practice these skills in a variety of activities and workshops with classmates under the observation of experienced chess instructors from the JHS Chess Team.
