'22 SUMMER, Level-1 Boot-Camp! Week of 7/11-7/15 @ 2pm pst
WARM WELCOME TO THE ONLINE '22 BOOT CHESS CAMP FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS!
>>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 or complete a game on their own.
Boot-Camp Format: 5 Daily Lessons on Zoom, 50 minutes each, Monday through Friday, most suited for players 5-11. Registration comes with a 1-Year Gold Membership to Chesskid.com ($49 value!) if the student does not already have one. Level 1 Boot-Camps come with the expectation that students will play on their own time, so the 50 minute session can be dedicated to Lessons/instruction. A Homework checklist will be presented in your Orientation email (that will arrive the Sunday before the Camp starts) to help all campers keep up with the curriculum.
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!
Most new players, age 5+, that complete a full week of Camp and has completed our 'Mighty-Pawns' practice Checklist (provided in the orientation email) should be ready to join BAC for Level 2 Individual daily Camps "Pools"! Students that are still struggling and/or are not able to complete the suggested practice checklist may wish to repeat a BAC Level 1 Boot-Camp.
Maximum Ratio: 10:1
New Users: Information about your ChessKid Membership will be emailed days before Camp starts (in cases of late registration, it will arrive ASAP)
Zoom Links: The orientation for BootCamps (containing the Zoom Link) are emailed to you on SUNDAY Evenings before the Camp.
