2019-2020 Barnsley Chess Club
2nd – 5th Grade 1 st graders with experience are welcome
The Barnsley PTA is pleased to sponsor chess lessons with Chess Masters Victor Sherman and Arkadiy Frenkel. Mr Sherman and Mr Frenkel each have more than 30 years experience teaching chess. Some of their current and former students include several well-known Grandmasters.
Students with or without chess experience are welcome. Students will be grouped for lessons and games based on their ability. Beginners will learn how to play chess while more experienced students will work on improving their strategy. A portion of each class is devoted to instruction and a portion to play. Chess teaches kids to think before they act. They learn strategy, sportsmanship and about the consequences of their decisions. It’s also a lot of fun! Trophies and awards are given at the end of each session!
Space is limited! Registrations are accepted first-come, first-served!
