Sign up for Chess Class on July 8th!

Hello Chess Enthusiasts,

Matt Jensen has led the way to provide more opportunities for chess players to improve in Rochester by leading several chess camps in recent months. At the recommendation of local chess players and parents, Matt and chess expert and experienced chess coach Roy Truelson will be offing the first in a series of chess classes. The classes will be offered as 1 or 1.5 hours sessions starting out on July 8 at Harwick Cafeteria. The goal is to help participants rise to the next level of chess competence. Hopefully, the continuity of working with a chess instructor who tailors their curriculum to participants will facilitate the process of advancement.

We are asking participants to sign up as soon as possible. We are aiming to keep the classes small, with 6 or less participants.
