This class is appropriate for all skill levels. Each class is divided into three sections: instruction, chess playing, and a fun activity. Students will learn the noble game of chess with a 74 page workbook designed by Chess Master Joshua Romero. How does the geography of Europe relate to different chess openings? How can you break your opponent’s strong center to attack the vulnerable king? How can you get checkmate with two bishops vs. a king? How can the knight tour the entire chess board by landing on each square only once? How can you calculate the color of any square on the chessboard without even looking? How can you break an apple in two using only your bare hands? We will learn all these things and more! Most importantly, we will learn proper etiquette and sport psychology to become good winners as well as good losers.

Registration and Cancellation Policy
Enrichment Registration opens Wednesday, January 30 at 7:00pm and will close Sunday, February 24 at 11:59pm!
This closing date allows us to determine whether or not a class has enough enrollment to run. However, registration will remain open for those classes that still have space and have met their minimum number of students by February 24 at 11:59pm.
Because these classes are enrollment driven, we have the following cancellation policy:
To cancel your registration: Email email@example.com your full name, student’s name, and the name of the class.
Mackintosh reserves the right to cancel any Enrichment class that does not meet minimum enrollment. Full refunds will be issued and you will be notified at least one week prior to the start date of class (notification will be February 26 for classes that begin on March 4 and 5).
