The Barnsley PTA is pleased to sponsor chess lessons with Russian Chess Master Victor Sherman. Victor has over 30 years experience teaching chess. Some of Victor’s 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!
