Chess In 1 Day

Chessin1Day is a volunteer teen chess instruction initiative in New York & Connecticut. We offer K-12th grade students, families/guardians, and educators a free and fast immersion into the game. Although chess is perceived as complex to learn-- we've developed a proprietary method that activates players in just one meet-up. Our classes are held at local libraries, schools and community centers with  champion rated teen instructors who love to teach. We also provide follow-up lessons, vetted resources, and have a club for students to gain further 

game mastery.

We have taught over 440 students chess, and trained 40 instructors in the Chessin1Day method. The Chessin1day team brings the joy and benefits of chess wherever we go! We are excited for our Chessin1day session with you!

I had my twins (8 years old) Alexander and Willow to the Somers library chess lesson and they had a blast.  The one-on-one attention was wonderful, and everyone was so helpful so please keep it up! We hope that we can sit down with Jack again, or any of the great teachers at the next session in Mahopac. 

Please keep us posted!
