Saturday Chess Academy

The Saturday Chess Academy is offered to Hunter students and their siblings on Saturday afternoons in the Library.

It is taught by Hunter coach, Farai Mandizha. The academy will have a mix of instruction and games, and is open to all levels as follows:

  • Beginners (< 600): 2-3pm
  • Novice/Experienced (Rated > 600): 3-4pm

The Saturday Chess Academy was created to provide families an additional and affordable option in the event the after school timing did not work. The overall structure is essentially the same between the after school Hawks Nest Chess and the Saturday Chess Academy. The Academy may be taken in lieu of or in addition to the weekday Hawks Nest classes, depending on interest and time availability.

The cost is $10/child and there is no registration for Chess Academy.  Your child may attend any session (but please come at the time that best matches your child’s level) and you pay at drop off.
