Learn chess from a Silver Knights chess coach! State and national champions have come from our programs, but most of our students are just looking to have fun! Class time is split between lesson and play. Lessons range from learning the rules to advanced tournament strategies, depending on the student's skill level. Play time is structured to pair each student against an opponent of similar skill. All grades and skill levels are welcome. Silver Knights will supply all the equipment during Chess Club. Students will have the opportunity to play in tournaments.
Every week, Silver Knights teaches more than 6,000 children to play chess, build LEGO® robots, and write computer code. We teach in more than 250 schools and employ more than 200 amazing instructors.
"Both of my boys and myself enjoyed the LEGO robotics club. The builds were challenging but not too hard. The instructor was great at explaining techniques and encouraged the children when needed. He helped the children without building if for them. We would love to do it again!'"
"Chess Club has been a wonderful experience for my 7 year old son. When he started the chess, no one in our family knew how to play. My son was so enthusiastic to share what he learned, that his excitement rubbed off on the rest of the family. My son was able to teach the family and it is now a regular family evening event. The Chess Club kept him captivated and motivated to learn new moves and improve his game. He loved his experience so much that he enrolled in the next session. Thanks for teaching him this great life skill and keeping it fun and engaging!"
“My son came home and has not been able to STOP doing Scratch! When I picked him up he said 'MOM! I'm good at it!" So sweet!!! His brother is doing Scratch now. Thanks for inspiring them.'"
