What's New!

Winter, '23

Beginner and intermediate chess players, join Chessin1day at New Canaan Library, CT to learn

everything you need to know to get started or to sharpen your skills.

We'll introduce the rules of the game and help you think strategically.

This is a special intergenerational session, open to everyone from 1st grade through adulthood!

Kids will learn on one side of the room, while adults learn on the other.

Parents and caregivers are encouraged to register to take this class at the same time as their kids, and adults without children in the class are also welcome to register


Fall, '23
            We'll teach chess at Teachers College, Columbia University
on National Chess Day, October 14th~ SIGN UP!
Educators have the widest reach to instruct chess to future students.
Also, on
10/27 we'll teach another LARGE chess session at New Canaan Library
with over 30 students and 10+ teen instructors on hand! This fall we will offer students, families (parents/guardians), girls only, and educators classes
separately & together!

And...we're SO PROUD to be a US Chess AFFILIATE!


Summer, '23
There's so much happening with Chessin1day this summer, '23! 
We have been
hosting family & guardian classes because students learn best when they
continue practice at home with family.  We've had parents, caregivers, guardians, grandparents take class alongside their kids and  attend on their
own! Also new
at Chessin1day
are classes just for girls as we aim to close the gender gap in chess and have a big demand for these specific classes.

Upcoming this June at New Canaan Library, CT we will host a
Girls Chess Instruction & Pizza Party!
In our April class we were delighted to teach chess to high school 

exchange students visiting from Argentina!
     As always, we provide
free chess classes, target our programming to underserved populations,
and continue to bring the
benefits of chess to all.
