Fremont Summer Chess Camp 2013: Preview 1

The Torres Chess and Music Academy coaches are hard at work developing lesson plans for the 2013 Fremont Summer Chess Camp at Mission San Jose Elementary School. Below is a paragraph about one of our coaches taken from a recent article on the upcoming Fremont Summer Chess Camp.

If ever there was an official Hall of Fame for California chess coaches, Joe
Lonsdale would be a first ballot inductee. Joe Lonsdale started the MSJE
(Mission San Jose Elementary School, Fremont) chess team in 1990 when his oldest
son was a third grader at MSJE. It didn’t take long for Joe’s chess team to rise
to the top. In 1992, Coach Joe led MSJE to win its first grade level National
Championship. They won the overall National
Elementary School Championship in both 2009 and in 2013. At the 2012 Elementary
School Nationals, MSJE was the only team in the country to finish in the top
four in every Elementary school championship section (K-1, K-3, K-5, & K-6).
Joe Lonsdale’s goal in chess is to make MSJE the strongest scholastic chess
program in the nation and the recent evidence of their success would suggest
that he is succeeding.
