Beginner Chess with Nolan DeMott | Ages 7+

Tuesday, January 5, 2021

During this Beginner Chess series students will review the basics of play and the rules of the game; students will also begin to develop an understanding of fundamental chess principles and basic tactical ideas. As the series progresses slightly more advanced principles and strategies will be introduced. This class is best suited for elementary aged children as well as slightly older students who are interested in learning about playing chess.

Registration for this series is full. If you have previously registered, you will be emailed the Zoom meeting link each week.

Nolan DeMott is an experienced Chess player with over 12,000 games played on, having achieved a rating of 1900. Nolan started playing Chess at age 5 and started competing in tournaments soon after. In elementary school, he led his elementary school to a Top 4 finish at the Hurvitz Cup a regional team chess tournament, hosted by The Massachusetts Chess Association. While Nolan decided early on to not pursue playing the game at a more serious level, he's always found the time to play recreationally and teach those who are looking to improve their game.
