CHESS PROGRAMS

 PK-8th

As our name would suggest, YOUR BEST CHESS does an unparalleled job of providing THE BEST CHESS PROGRAM in the Washington Metropolitan area! We have developed our own curriculum, courtesy of a combined 54 years of Chess playing/teaching experience.

 
 
 
 

Our objectives for ALL "Your Best Chess" students:

Have fun! ThinkReason, and Problem-Solve! Learn Chess! Improve One’s Game! Play in tournaments to gauge one’s progress!

TOURNAMENTS

We organize two Area-Wide Tournaments each year in the Fall/Winter and late Spring.

Sign up for a Your Best Chess camp this Fall.

 

Your Best Chess provides camps throughout the year and throughout the nation during the months of October, December, February, May, June, July and August.  Both "Full Day" (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.) and "Half Day" (9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon OR 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.) options are available.  No matter the ability level (beginning to advanced), youngsters will have an exciting time as they:  learn the game of Chess, improve their game, learn new strategies/skills, rise in self-confidence, have a great class tournament experience, and tap their amazing brain WITHOUT the use of a "screen"!  Your Best Chess camps are entertaining, fun and enjoyable... no boredom will be found at any of our camps!  See link for details on upcoming Fall 2017 camps/locations.

No camps are scheduled at this time.  Please check back again to see our

Sign up for a "Your Best Chess" class at your school.

Every one-hour class consists of a structured lesson (all skill levels are taught separately). Groups are given ample time to play actual games (youngsters in these age brackets need some unstructured time or they interpret enrichment programs as an extension of school). Plenty of time is allocated for questions and answers at the end of each class to reinforce what has been taught that day.

Our final class in every session is what we refer to as "Tournament Trophy Day". All of our chess players will engage in a four-round tournament followed by the presentation of trophies that everyone will have earned!!!! That’s right…each student will be rewarded with a trophy by simply demonstrating that they are actively learning chess!!!!! What could serve as a better learning environment?!?!?!
