Chess Club

Led by professional instructors from the Chess Club of Fairfield County (CCFC), players new to the game will learn the basic rules, movements and goals of the game. All participants will also study opening strategy, middlegame concepts, classic games by chess legends, and common endgame techniques. CCFC's curriculum was designed with a focus on developing critical thinking, decision making, and time management skills. Plus, who doesn't love saying checkmate? Keep learning with us; returning students welcome for more advanced training.

All K-5 (in-person) after school programs are limited to the students attending that school.

Registration for Session 2 in November will be on hold until the schedule is confirmed.
