    Default Homeschool Chess Club

    I don't post much, mostly lurk, but wanted to share this here because my 8yo son has loved it so much.

    Homeschool Chess Club

    A chess coach in Arizona started an online club for homeschool kids and has been running a "summer camp" that my son's been part of for the past couple months, with live online tournaments, video lessons, a FB group with discussion and puzzles, and challenges to other kids. The kids range from beginner to pretty good and I think most are 6-13 yrs old, with a lot in the 8-10 yr old range.

    Video chess instruction and puzzles are pretty easy to find online -- kids to play games against are not so easy to find, so having the club has been great. There's going to be a fall semester too (we'll do it again for sure), and I think it's cheaper if you sign up in the next couple weeks.

    Is this a FaceBook only club? We had a whirlwind with chess last year and BOTH of my children learned to play, were super interested for several months, but it kind of petered out. I'd love to re-kindle the chess flame! (But, I don't use FaceBook.)
