Chess is a classic game that develops spatial thinking and strategies and builds focused concentration. Taught by a professional chess coach, the class is geared toward all levels of chess players. Beginners learn basic game rules and opening tactic moves. Intermediate and advanced players learn sophisticated combinations and strategies and advanced opening moves. Now is your chance to bring your game to the next level. The best part of all - CHESS IS FUN! Who knows, maybe your son or daughter is the next world chess champion like Bobby Fischer!

Instructor

Igor Rybakov


Igor Rybakov started playing chess in school as a young boy in his native Belarus. He started teaching chess and checkers to children in Russia over 30 years ago. When he arrived in the United States in 2001, he began teaching chess to students at Hopkins Public Schools and other surrounding west metro areas. In 2010, he was named "Best Chess Coach in Minnesota." Igor believes that chess is "good training for the brain" and is a great team sport that increases a student's logical and strategic thinking abilities. Igor is very excited about the Hopkins Chess Program, where there are a large number of girls playing chess, too, in a sport that has often been dominated by boys.
