Starting soon! Championship Chess classes for Vanderlyn kids

(Virtual) Interactive Lessons, Live Play, excellent Online curriculum!


Championship Chess is excited to offer chess classes again to Vanderlyn Elementary students this year. As Dekalb County Schools is not allowing any visitors or outside instructors into the school currently, we will start the year virtually. If things change for the better, we will immediately segue to in-person teaching at the school.


Our virtual classes are interactive, taught by head Coach Steve and his staff. Each is 30 minutes long, with time for questions and answers. The children play each other after each class using the excellent online platform, They also have access to our online curriculum The World of Chess, with videos, and fun lessons 24/7, whenever they want to use it. Also each class is recorded and archived, and over the past year and a half, the players who have reviewed the weekly lesson have made remarkable progress and have enjoyed the opportunities a second look at a complicated subject can provide.


We hope that your child will join us for our new virtual series of classes. Open the Online Flyer for Fall 2021 for more details.


Questions? Contact Coach Dennis. We would love to teach your child chess this year!
