Attend a Boylston Chess Clinic

Boylston Chess Foundation

Attend a Boylston Chess Clinic 

December recess: 28, 29, 30, 31

9:00 am - 12:30 pm each day

Taught by SM Jacob Rasin, these clinics are great for students of all levels.

This program invites young chess players who already have a complete understanding of the rules of chess to come and develop their abilities. With a combination of lecture, question/answer and guided cooperative learning, the instructor will cover essential elements of the game:

Tactics    Strategy    Openings    Middlegames    Endgames    Problems    
Students will develop their memory, visualization ability, attention span, critical thinking skills, as well as their sense of fairness and good sportsmanship – all while having fun!

 About the instructor: A master of the game and a Boylston Chess Club member for over 25 years, Jacob Rasin has been a professional chess teacher for over 35 years in the Soviet Union and the United States. 1978-1989, Jacob served as head coach at the Pioneers Palace of the Leningrad Province; 1982-1985, he had the additional assignment of training Soviet grandmasters and international masters.
