Difficulty Levels:

Clubs use our Default Level system as below:
  Level 1: Absolute Beginners (Needs help with the piece movement and unable to Checkmate)
  Level 2: Beginner Level (Usually under a year of chess or below 400 rating, or Chesskid 400-999)
  Level 3: Intermediate (A few Years of Chess or under 900 USCF rating, or Chesskid 1000-1299)
  Level 4: Advanced (Tournament Players, 900-1300 rating, or Chesskid 1300-1600)
It is preferred that Absolute beginners join us for Level 1 courses before attending Clubs, as club lessons will expect all players to know basic piece movement. 
Higher Rated players are encouraged to look into TEAM classes or Level 5 Courses.
