Online Training is available to both our Digital and Grandmaster Members. The training sessions consist of an instructor introducing a topic, followed by students applying the learned material through practice games and engaging in puzzle solving. While the lessons cover the same material as our In-Person sessions, they are shorter in duration and do not include Open Play and Monthly Check-Ins.

In-Person Training is available to our Grandmaster Members only. During the lessons, our instructors deliver a lecture on a specific topic, followed by students putting their newfound knowledge into practice through interactive game sessions and puzzle solving contests. We have 2 instructors present at the facility during each lesson, ensuring a supportive learning environment.

Student's Level - our curriculum is divided into 4 groups:

  • Beginner: 300 - 699 USCF
  • Intermediate: 700 - 1099 USCF
  • Advanced: 1100 - 1499 USCF
  • Expert: 1500 - 2000 USCF
