A. Fantis Parochial School

About A. Fantis Program

NYChessKids is happy to announce a partnership with A. Fantis Parochial School and the opportunity to offer our Chess Afterschool Program.



  • Beginners Class: Kids on this level will learn the basic moves of the game, like how to move the pieces, check & checkmate, stalemate, castling, promotion and they will work in different puzzles like checkmate in one.

  • Intermediate Class: Kids on this level will continue building up the basic level, learning combinations like double attack, fork, pin, x-ray and different kind of strategies to finish the games. Kids will work in many puzzles like checkmate in two.

  • Chess Team: This level is for kids that want to prepare and be ready for tournaments. We are planning to create a Chess Team in the school that would participate and represent the school in local tournaments. All kids would be able to be part of the team, there would be no restrictions. For more information, please CONTACT US.
