Welcome to San Ramon Friday Night chess!
Classes are 90 minutes in duration from 5:30-7:00 p.m. The class is followed by a free optional, rated tournament from 7:00-8:00 p.m. which gives the students an opportunity to gain tournament experience.
In order to participate in the USCF rated tournament, you must have a current USCF membership. You can purchase or renew your membership on our website at http://www.berkeleychessschool.org/uscf-membership/***
Please note: We will be offering a Novice class at the Berkeley location only. There is no beginner class at San Ramon.
For the San Ramon Friday Night program, all students must know how the pieces move and have an enthusiasm for chess. Also, all children must have completed kindergarten, and all young children are accepted on a provisional basis.
We offer an early bird discount if you register early. The discount will end at midnight the Sunday before the first day of class.
*** In order to participate in the tournament, you must have a current USCF membership. However, in order to register before getting your official number, you can put in any number and proceed with registration for the class and tournament. By the time of the first tournament, you must either have your USCF ID number, or show the tournament director your receipt. It takes about two weeks for your number to arrive. Thank you.
