Our online Summer Classes will be held using our remote portal – just like our regular classes.

Classes are open to all students. There are two types of classes available – Pawn/Knight class for chess novices and Bishop/Rook class for proficient players. As usual, we keep our classes small to make sure that the instructor has enough time to analyze everybody’s games and advice on improvements accordingly.

The classes will be lead by Jared Becker, an awesome chess player, and a very experienced teacher. The amount of available seats is limited. We offer 10 seats per class. 

Summer Clinic

Summer Clinic is designed for kids who know the foundation of chess and looking to work and better their chess skills in one week.

Our online Summer Camps will be held using our remote portal and additional online and offline activities.  Camps are open to all students as long as they are able to play chess and do not need fundamental lessons.  We’ll do the best we can to make sure each camp is large enough for campers to have a fun social experience but still small enough that each student gets personal attention from the instructor. Ilya Krasik, National Master is a highly rated professional chess coach who is great with kids. 

We lowered the price by $100 since this is not an in-person camp, however we kept the same program structure and same activities, minus breaks outside.

No discounts, or promotions, the lowest price we can afford to offer, while still maintaining the high quality many of you came to expect from NECS over the years.  

We do have a hard cap of 10 kids per session, and many weeks are already mostly filled in.
