Chess is back - by popular demand! Please note that we will be hosting two back-to-back classes based on age/experience level.

3:30pm - 4:30pm: Chess Club is open to children 6+ who are familiar with the chess pieces and know how to move them. They will learn how to open correctly, control the center of the board, castle, and get a checkmate. We want this to be super fun, but also an opportunity to learn something! Students must be able to maintain focus and remain seated for a chess class. If a student is being disruptive, they will receive two fair warnings before the parent is asked to pick up their child. We want to give all participants the best possible environment to learn from this class experience.

4:45pm - 5:30pm: Introduction to Chess is open to kids over the age of 5 that are brand new to chess. We want this to be super fun, but also an opportunity to learn something! Students must be able to maintain focus and remain seated for a chess class. We want to give all participants the best possible environment to learn from this class experience.

Dates: Wednesday 9/21, 9/28, 10/5, 10/12, 10/19, 10/26, 11/2 and 11/9. We will be hosting a ninth make-up class (date TBD) at the end of the series for children who may have missed a class.

Please take note of the following:

  • This series is divided into two groups. Please be sure to choose the appropriate age/experience level on the ticket page.
  • The instructor will have all of the neccessary equipment on hand.
  • It is recommended that you arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your lesson so you have time for a last minute visit to the restroom!
  • Caregivers must park in the main lot and walk down to the event barn space. We do not allow parking near the barn/tennis/pool area. 
  • Jess will not be on site for the lesson. If you have any questions, please contact her at jess@inness.co.

Please note that after school programming is only available to current INNESS members. This series requires an 8-week committment, and partial refunds will not be provided for missed classes. *We must reach a number of sign-ups in order to host these two classes.

She is currently the coach of the Rockin' Rooks, an award winning competitive chess team based in Rhinecliff, NY. Her goal is to help her students really learn about chess...and to have fun!
