Registered Players Instructions

Thank you for registering for Shady Grove Fall Chess!  We are looking forward to sharing a fun 10 weeks of giving your child some of the best chess instruction available in America today.

Before class begins, please click on, “being a good chess parent”.  It’s the basic framework for how to get better at chess without having to play their parents.  Please read it together.  We will be giving prizes to students that can tell us about the page on day 1!

DO NOT BUY ANY BOOKS OTHER THAN THE POLGAR BOOK MENTIONED IN, ” Being a good chess parent”.  We will have books, sets, and other items for sale each week that are perfect for the skills of the people in the course.

Returning or advanced students should be working on tactics at, and all forms of Puzzle Rush!
