New and returning students invited. Each Youth Enrichment League (YEL) Chess class follows four basic components: teaching, practicing, puzzles and playing the game. Students are taught different chess concepts and coached to implement those concepts into their chess games. Students practice positions set by the coach to improve their understanding of the concept. Students are given chess puzzles and work with coach guidance to solve them. Each class ends with students playing 20-30 minutes of chess. Coaches often feature in-class tournaments during the session. Registration fee includes: membership for the chess session, prizes and puzzle sheets. Sign up today to think, learn and play well with YEL!
