REGISTRATION FOR OUR FINAL SESSION OF CHESS CLUB WHICH WILL RUN FROM JANUARY 22nd - FEBRUARY 19th IS OPEN!


The Shorewood Hills Elementary School Chess Club is open to all Shorewood School students in Kindergarten through 5th grade of all chess abilities, beginning to advanced. Our Chess Club is led by FIDE (The World Chess Federation) Master Alex Betaneli, who was the Wisconsin state champion in 2000, 2001, 2005, and 2012. He frequently writes for Chess Life, the most widely read American chess magazine. Alex’s students consistently win titles at both state and national levels. In addition, two other highly rated and experienced chess instructors accompany Alex to each session. Parental volunteer Jack Koziol organizes the club for students and the PTO to ensure a safe and fun environment for learning chess.  


This year the Chess Club will be offering three separate sessions. All sessions are open to students of ALL abilities from beginner to advanced. All levels will taught various aspects of chess through in-class instruction, problem-solving, and peer play.  Children will be grouped according to experience level so that teaching can be tailored to their skill level.
