PALS 2017 Winter/Spring School Chess Club

Register online here

PALS Chess Academy offers year-round chess instruction to kids in the Greater Denver Area. Our scholastic chess clubs typically last for one hour before or after-school. Time is divided equally between group lessons and supervised playing. Over the course of a semester, children learn the most important checkmating patterns, opening fundamentals, middlegame strategy and tactics, and basic endgame technique. They work in teams on fun and creative challenges to hone their skills.

Under our creative curriculum, developed by former scholastic National Champion and National Master Lior Lapid, chess is a powerful tool for social, personal, intellectual and academic growth. Chess reinforces (among others) perseverance and concentration, raises self-esteem, promotes sportsmanship, and best of all, it is tons of fun (National Scholastic Chess Foundation). For more information about the benefits of chess education, click here. In addition, our chess program emphasizes other relevant skillsets like: teamwork, leadership, mathematical and verbal skills, as well as storytelling.

If you have any questions, or want to start a scholastic chess club at your child’s school, please feel free to e-mail Lior Lapid at, or submit a message here at any time.
