ON-LINE/VIRTUAL Chess Program

 

ICA KIDS ONLINE Virtual classes will be available to students who prefer to participate and learn from the comfort of their own homes. The Fall On-Line semester runs from September 9th to November 23rd. 

 

ICA will offer the same quality of in-person teaching that has been the bedrock of our reputation for over 20 years.  

We invite you to find a day and time that works for you.  

While maintaining a sense of responsibility and commitment to the students and the entire chess community, ICA provides online instruction within a Virtual SAFE environment.

The virtual class structure is kept as close as possible to the traditional in-person classroom in that a 6:1 student teacher ratio is maintained, with lots of individual attention, class participation, interaction, games at the end of class, and homework. Students are grouped by skill level and encouraged to harness their knowledge and growth. It is very important during these times to keep kids active, focused, learning, socially engaged, and most important, challenged.

Virtual classes offer lots of perks:

-Easy access for both kids and parents (No need to drive to the site, everything is already prepared far in advance!)
 

-More tools to moderate our classes (Muting functions, breakout rooms, sharing tools etc.)
 

-Many online resources we can use for teaching!(Video lectures, tactics trainers, club tournaments etc.)
 

Overall, virtual classes allow the student to participate from the comfort of their own home while maintaining the benefits we had from onsite classes. Students are still able to socialize while enjoying chess, yet are able to have a more focused productive session free of unnecessary noise.
