The Berkeley Chess School offers intermediate and advanced chess instruction at Country Club Elementary School, 7534 Blue Fox Way, San Ramon, CA 94583.
Classes are 90 minutes in duration from 5:30-7:00 p.m. Class is followed by an optional rated tournament from
7:00-8:00 p.m. which gives the students an opportunity to gain tournament experience.
Since the tournament is rated, all students must have a current USCF membership in order to participate. If you do not have a USCF membership, you can purchase or renew one here:
We do not offer a beginner class at this location; all students must have previous chess experience. All students must know how the pieces move and have an enthusiasm for chess. All students must have completed kindergarten, and all young children are accepted on a provisional basis.
Tournament results are posted with the USCF at the end of each session, not each Friday.
