Virtual Sunday Lessons

Service provided by highly rated and experienced Student Chess Coach Volunteers.

After the success of our first in-person chess lessons at the SouthPark Regional Library, we have decided to setup free virtual chess coaching lessons for students of all rating levels to learn chess.

Each week, students will be placed in three groups based on skill level and we will have lessons catered to their chess experience. These classes are of no cost to students, however spots are limited, so sign up fast! We look forward to seeing you every Sunday!

Dates: Every Sunday

Time: 5:00pm - 6:00pm ET

Data Science Project

Are you a student interested in pursuing a career in Data Science or Tech and also love Chess? Then we have the project for you! We have brought onboard a Data Scientist that will be working with students on a Data Science Project that will combine the field of Data Science with Chess. No coding background is required, we will start from the beginning and guide each step of the way.

There is no other project like this anywhere! It should be a very fun and exciting journey!
