ImagesLEVEL 1: ONLINE MIGHTY PAWNS -Chess- ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS, 1-1:45 PM PST (12/28/20-1/1/21)

BAC proudly launches ONLINE '20-21 WINTER BOOT Chess CAMP!

>>Please Note that the Start Time for all BAC Camps use Pacific Standard Time -  See Time Zones


This is a LEVEL 1 Absolute Beginners Chess Camp: For BRAND NEW players only; still learning the pieces and unable to checkmate. 

   Topics can include: Piece names/movement, starting position, turn-sequence, piece values, special rules, general board competencies and checks/checkmates. Combine with the first 10 video lessons on ChessKid for optimal development and support! 

 The average new player, age 6+, that completes 5 Camp sessions and has watched the first ~10 Chesskid Animated lessons should only have to stay in Level 1 for a single week.  Age 5 depends on enthusiasm and practice. (See more on BAC Skill Levels)

Stack 'em up Bonus: Purchasing Multiple Boot-Camps ( Time Slots) in a single transaction will grant a 10% discount!

Maximum Ratio: 10:1

Boot-Camp Format: 4 Daily Lessons, Monday through Thursday, with a Practice Tournament on Friday (at the same time!). Registration comes with a Gold Membership to Chesskid.com if the student does not already have one. Boot-Camps come with the expectation that students will play on their own time, so the 45 minute session can be dedicated to Lessons/instruction. Please explore the 5 Skill Levels to see what's best for you.

New users: Information about your ChessKid Membership will be emailed 0-3 days before Camp starts. 

Zoom Links: The orientation for BootCamps (containing the Zoom Link) are emailed to you on SUNDAY Evenings before the Camp.

"Pro-rates and Make-ups": The 4 sessions of BootCamps cannot be pro-rated, but if you know in advance that you will miss ONE session, you can let us know and join a make-up class by attending one of our Drop-In club sessions. Those are at specific times of the week and are by Level: Drop-In Sessions.

We look forward to having your child in class with us!  Please, spread the word!
