Chess has moved online and so will our Summer Chess Camp!
MCCL is excited to announce an online Summer Chess Camp option for our competitive players. Summer Camp Director will be CM Jonathan Rasberry who also serves as ACF President. Coach Jonathan has worked with our MCCL kids at numerous state and national tournaments as well as previous summer chess camps. Coach Jonathan has invited LM Scott Varagona, State Chess Champion for multiple years; CM Will Stevenson, former State Chess Champion and coach for Rainbow Elementary; David Hayes, coach for Mill Creek and Heritage Elementary; and Michael Guthrie, coach for Rainbow Elementary and All Star Chess Club to help teach rotations for multiple levels of competitive players in our area.
Chess Camp Schedule and Topics
Morning and afternoon sessions are available for a wide range of USCF rated players. Each session will expose students to instruction on basic principles of chess, openings, endgames, tactics, learning from chess masters' games, and tournament play with game analysis. Afternoon sessions will also introduce some fun chess variants like Bughouse, 4-player chess, 960 Chess and an opportunity to play in a simultaneous chess match with instructors. Meeting rooms will be set up through Zoom, and games will be played on ChessKid or Chess.com. Here is a tentative schedule of the sessions (subject to change):
