Usdan’s Chess classes are uniquely designed to meet the needs of each student, no matter the experience level. The Usdan Chess Ladder groups students in varying levels, from absolute novices to advanced players. New players learn rules, notation, and the opening, middle, and end games. Advanced players develop a vast repertoire of complex strategies and the ability to apply them in-game. All benefit from improved problem-solving, critical thinking, and concentration. Students hone their skills through game play and tutoring in competitive chess tournaments and exciting team competitions. Chess players learn in the sunny Maurice B. Hexter Center by highly ranked tournament players with decades of experience. All levels welcome. Classes are grouped according to age division and grade.
