Chess4Life Summer Camps 2020-Online!

Weekly, beginning June 1st, and ending August 28th.

 

Chess4life has successfully designed, and now runs, several online chess programs, one of which is Chess Camps!

We will be hosting Online Chess Camps throughout the summer. This gives an opportunity to participate in a FUN and ENGAGING program, for any student who wishes to learn the game or improve their knowledge, and gives parents the chance to have some FOCUS time!

Your child will enjoy participating in camp with our highly experienced LIVE coaching. Each day, students will receive lessons and play in a tournament round, followed by game analysis.

Chess4Life coaches are trained in a proven curriculum, created by National Master Elliott Neff. Our programs have touched the lives of thousands of students in the last 15 years, even being included in the Head Start Early Learning Initiative, through a grant from Boeing.  Although Chess4Life is a Puget Sound based company, our curriculum is used in school districts across the country.

Students of all skill levels, and ages 6-16, are encouraged to join. Each camp provides an education program tailored to your child's needs through an assessment completed at the beginning of camp. Our instructors challenge students with new material that reinforces a solid foundation and encourages positive life skills.

Whether you want your student to learn chess for the first time, or you're looking to keep your high-level student engaged, Chess4life Online Camps have something for you!

2020 VIRTUAL GM Camp for Students Rated 2100+ 

​FIVE WEEKS!  FROM JUNE 22-- JULY 24

GM Artur Jussupow will be teaching ICA's 2020 virtual GM Camps for elite students rated 2100+. Registration is Now Open.

GM Jussupow hardly needs an introduction in the Chess world. Having appeared three times in the semi-finals of the World Championships and awarded the title of FIDE senior trainer in 2005, Jussupow is unquestionably considered one of the best players and chess coaches that is come along in the last two decades. With his fierce intellect and charming personality, he has always been a favorite among ICA students. 

Not only has Jussupow been second and advisor to both Viswanathan Anand and Peter Leko during their world championship campaigns, he has also played a major role in the preparation of many of today's younger GM’s such as Alexei Alexandrov and Sergei Movsesian.  Artur's excellent understanding of the game can be seen in his collaboration with Mark Dvoretsky and in his books, including the quintessential ‘Petroff Defence’, in which he has been acknowledged as the leading authority on the opening.

 

He is also been a noted expert on the Lasker Defence of the Queen's Gambit Declined, having contributed many new ideas to an opening that's over one hundred years old.

For the past few months, GM Jussupow has been leading virtual classes at ICA from his home in Germany. And he is very excited that he will still be able to run the Elite Student Summer Camp Program and teach the students via internet from Germany.

GM Jussupow utilizes many resources and tools to enhance the students’ experience in his online classes. He includes video lectures, tactic trainers and breakout sessions. Students learn but can still socialize during his highly focused lessons.
