Group Training

Computer Training

Playing chess on the INTERNET is always an enjoyable way to practice. There are numerous sites to play on, however only a limited few are child sensitive sites. In our experience, two child-friendly sites include www.zoomchess.com and Yahoo Kids©. There is also a variety of chess software available. Some of the better training programs for children include the “ChessMaster” series. Older students are recommended to play on lichess.com.
