Climb the Rating Ladder: 400 to 1000 (Tuesday Group)


Event Overview


This group meets online on Tuesdays for two hours, starting at 6:00pm ET (5:00pm CT, 4:00pm MT, 3:00pm PT). This group’s students are rated between 400 and 1000 USCF.

Students play one USCF-online-regular-rated game per week, after which a professional chess coach will help students analyze their games together as a group. When time permits, the coach will also give the class puzzles and lectures on tactics and strategy. Coaches are all experienced chess players who have a passion for teaching. Coaches in our online courses have included National Master Justin Burgess (USCF: 2217), Dennis Norman (2171), and Tapiwa Gwaze (1995).

  • Time control: game in 25 minutes with a 5-second increment

  • Games submitted to the USCF for rating at the end of every month

  • Open to scholastic players from any geographical location

  • Active USCF membership required

  • Class participation strongly encouraged
