IM Ryosuke Nanjo & CM Alex Averbukh have hosted a spring one-day chess camp on Saturday, March 11h, 2017. Tokyo Bilingual Chess Club's policy of "Chess Should be Fun" truly prevails for this cool day of camp! From Chess Leaders to Chess Master, this Camp is sure to captivate, motivate and generate chess players. Each child will receive as much Chess time as they like while enjoying mind clearing fun, cooling and break opportunities.
16 elementary school students showed up for the Spring Chess Camp. Special thanks to Hilmi Zakaria who had been representing National Chess Player in Malaysia for help with monitoring the games and helping to set up and break down everything. Also, thank you for being the best photographer, Emi Hasegawa, in the chess world! March birthday kids received a chess chocolate cake and a gift to enjoy. A huge thank you to everyone for all of their help and support!

Drop-Off: Campers enter through the Lobby (Details to be provided upon registration) and meet camp faculty and staff in the Room #2 for morning roll-call and announcements.
Morning Session: After an initial skills assessment, campers are divided into three groups. Tactical Tune Up campers play a round of chess using a G/15 time control. Students finishing their game early work with a tutor to review and analyze their game. Checkmate Challenge campers work on honing their middle and endgame checkmate techniques. Chess Crash Course campers start with the foundation of pawn and piece movement, and game-play.
