This event has ended.

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. 

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. 
  • This activity is only available to INNESS members.
  • If a student is being disruptive, they will receive two fair warnings before the parent is asked to pick up their child.
  • Jess will not be on site for the lesson. If you have any questions, please contact her at 

More about the Instructor: Chess coach and teacher D. Suris has been teaching after-school and recreational chess programs for over 20 years. 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!
