South Valley Leadership Academy Chess Program 14 Week Course- Fall 2023
In the PowerChess program, students learn how to move all the pieces and develop strategies that support the foundational principles of chess and improve critical-thinking abilities. Students can expect to spend the first 2-3 weeks becoming proficient in piece movement and other foundational game principles. Once mastered, students will learn checkmating patterns, chess opening ideas, learn tactical patterns, and play in weekly tournament-style chess games.
All students in the PowerChess program receive a premium GOLD membership to the world’s largest children’s chess website, chesskid.com (a value of $30.00). Chesskid.com allows students to practice the skills they are learning in the PowerChess program at home by studying lessons and solving chess puzzles that follow the PowerChess program.
