TPS’s Rookie Chess Club is designed for students who are interested in chess or have recently learned the rules of chess (e.g., how to move the pieces, the relative value of each piece, and the meaning of check, checkmate, and stalemate). This group is specifically for kindergarten students. This group will learn about center control, development of knights and bishops, and king safety. We will focus on the difference between "trading" pieces and "hanging" pieces. Thinking BEFORE touching is our number one priority. We will ask ourselves, "What is my opponent trying to do?" and "What is going to happen to my piece if I go there?" The emphasis is not on winning, but on having fun while learning one of the world’s oldest and most popular games. (Please note: This club begins October 7 and runs through November 25. There is no ASEP 5-day or Faculty/Staff discount for this club.)
