Chess for Kids *Fall 2021*
Capablanca Chess Academy, an affiliate of the United States Federation, is proud to offer a chess program taught by an International Chess Master and professional chess coach. All levels are welcomed. Students will be taught critical thinking skills and visualizations skills to help them learn and improve their game. Students will learn opening principles, tactics and strategies, end-game techniques and checkmate patterns. Multiple games of famous chess players will be analyzed during the session to show students the application of the principles taught in class and to teach them how a grand master thinks. Participants will also play with other players and receive feedback from the coach.
Chess challenges the brain to sustain concentration and strengthen executive functions. Students are taught the benefits of careful observation and concentration, learning to imagine a sequence of actions before they happen and potential outcomes. Children also learn patterns and apply them to different situations. They are taught how to control the impulsivity of playing without thinking. Every child is welcomed in our program.
