About Chess 
 
It’s Challenging, Fun, and a Fantastic Way to Meet New Friends
  
“Chess is an art, a science and a sport. The beginner or advanced student learns to develop and sharpen existing skills. Chess has been shown to improve memory, concentration and the ability to conceptualize. Engage in the number two sport in the world” - (“College Gifted Programs” - New Jersey)

International Master Chess Educator Barry Noble is a highly successful Chess Coach and a Certified Tournament Director on behalf of the U.S. Chess Federation. He has more than 35 years of experience in Chess Education, teaching children through adults the skills, fun and excitement of the Royal Game.

Chess Education can reveal abilities and talents that traditional methods leave hidden. Teaching the value of critical thinking, and active reasoning is almost a “lost art” in American education. Chess Education reverses that trend by focusing on key problems - solving skills. Developing the mind has never been more fun!

You will learn: Game structure, terms, essential strategies, tricks and traps, openings, end games, position analysis, game analysis, secrets of finding the best move each time, problem-solving, memory games, simultaneous exhibitions, tournament preparation, format system with a chess clock to help you think deeper and faster (for playing chess and in life), and much more.

 

Chess Education focuses on Concentration, improvement of academic skills, Social behavior, discipline and sportsmanship.

 

No memorization or experience necessary!

Why Chess Education:
“Chess is an ancient game that is popular all over the world. In some countries, chess instruction in the schools is common because chess requires high-level thinking skills (e.g., strategy building, problem solving, and spatial thinking) and improves the ability to concentrate. In addition, It provides motivation, independent critical thinking, an increased understanding of cause-effect relationships, patience, and self-reliance (Christiaen & Verholfstadt, 1978; Horgan, 1987, 1990, Horgan & Morgan, 1990; Reimann, 1994) for example, Frank and D’Hondt (1979)”.

Participation Benefits:
*Students learn to substitute critical thinking and strategic reasoning in place of violent reactions and undisciplined behavior in frustrating situations.

*Engaging in an in-depth chess research, thereby helping them to build self-confidence in their ability to conduct successful academic research. *Gaining insight into the nature of competition, which will help them in all other competitive endeavors that life can offer. My qualifications to implement this program are unique. Not only have I been fortunate enough to hone my chess skills in an international arena and earn the title of International Master Chess Educator & Expert Chess Therapist, but also my concern for our people has led me to devote my life's work to quality education through chess. Self-esteem and a hope in the future are two elements sadly missing in many of our children and teenagers. In chess, the triumph of a win can do so much to begin to instill a sense of self-worth. Losing chess game teaches sportsmanship, refines the ability to learn from mistakes, and inspires determination. Chess prepares students for life, because it teaches them to search for the best move before they act. No game is more honored. In addition, no game can be more quickly introduced into your enrichment programs, and harvest measurable results in such a short period. Chess is also the safest way to involve students in competitive sport. Once they know how to play, they will be hooked for life. In addition, you will have happier students have head new vistas opened for them.

Without an experienced guide, however, a chess program is just an air-condition room… boards, and pieces. That is where my three decades of international Chess educational experience come in. I have personally helped thousands of people, some with physical and mental disabilities, become "peaceful warriors" through Chess. I have been bringing people of all ages, abilities, and disabilities into the world of Chess for decades. With my help non-players become players in 90 minutes, (I promise!), average players become better, and the truly gifted and motivated learn what they must do to reach their potential.
