The Chess in Education Committee of US Chess is hosting the first in a series of monthly webinars on Sunday, January 29, 2023 at 8 pm ET. The event is free and participation is limited to the first 500 registrants.

January’s webinar, Building a Vibrant Chess Community: Learning from Impact Coaching Network, showcases the progress of Impact Coaching Network (led By Russ Makofsky) and their development of a remarkable group of schools with vibrant chess cultures.  In this webinar, we will meet Russ and members of his staff to learn about his approach to chess education and learn some of the critical elements he has implemented to  build communities of chess in New York City across a group of twenty schools.  Some topics to be discussed include:  

  • How to retain members of chess clubs in the elementary school?
  • What are the keys to developing chess talent?
  • How to convince school leaders that chess is important?

Participants will be provided an opportunity to interact in breakout rooms during this webinar. Register today.
