2017 Fall Semester Details:

The private HSCC Facebook member page opens on Sunday, September 3rd.  At that time, if you aren't already a member of the private HomeSchool Chess Club facebook group page (the page on which all class lessons and communications occur), you will be invited to join the group. This will allow you to see upcoming events, as well as photos and posts of existing students and member families who are already part of the club. 

The HSCC 2017 Fall Chess Club Semester runs from Sunday, September 10th to Saturday December 9th, 2017 (09/10 - 12/09, 1 week skipped for Thanksgiving), for a total of twelve (12) weeks. Two (2) forty-minute lessons will be presented each week (9AM MST - LIVE lessons are broadcast on Monday mornings & pre-recorded video lessons are made available on Friday mornings). The lessons are archived so your child can watch & learn from them at anytime during the course of the camp! On non-lesson days a brief five-minute video will be presented to introduce pertinent information, refresh and build upon past concepts taught, as well as to inform students of tournament standings and upcoming events. In order to participate in the HSCC you will need access to the internet and must have an active Facebook account. Twice a week (Wednesdays [1pm] & Saturdays [3pm]) scholastic-grade, rated chess tournaments are hosted by the HSCC via Chess.com. Once you've registered for the club and the club semester begins, you'll be given further instruction on tournament participation via your free Chess.com account. All students will receive virtual trophies for their tournament participation. However, the top 10% in every tournament will receive either a physical trophy, which will be mailed to them 7-10 business days after the completion of the tournament OR HSCC credit which can be used for entries into future chess tournaments.



The HSCC Fall Chess Club registration includes lessons and tournament participation rights for only 1 child ($89.50 for the primary child). To register additional children for the camp, please click the ADD and Additional Student (Sibling) option to register any other siblings that will be participating (an additional $24.50 per sibling).

If you have any questions, please contact Coach Phil directly at 623-330-9530.
