‘Tis the Season for Chess in Fremont

December 12, 2018

FREMONT, CALIFORNIA – 12/12/2018 (PrDistribution.com)

It’s the Most Wonderful time of the year for young chess players in Fremont, California. FremontChess.com has announced their winter schedule and it’s chock full of rated tournaments, holiday chess camps and fun chess classes that are sure to inspire all who attend.

The winter program kicks off on December 15th with the FremontChess.com Chess Quads. This round robin tournament is a great choice for young chess players because the format is non-elimination and all the participants are broken into groups of four (a quad) to ensure players of the same skill level are paired against each other. For only $25 ($20/quad if you sign up for 3), children will play three rated games, receive 1-on-1 instruction with professional coaches and be awarded a prize at the end of the tournament.

The FremontChess.com Winter Chess Camp is a special chess program designed and taught by nationally renowned chess instructor Chris Torres.  Due to the popularity of this camp, this year Chris Torres will be offering two unique three day chess camps each with a full day’s focus on opening, middle game and endgames. The FremontChess.com Winter Chess Camp will meet December 26-28th from 12:00 pm until 4:00 pm and then again January 2-4th from 12:00 pm until 4:00 pm. Both camps will have their own unique lessons and tournaments so students can attend both programs without any repeating material. The tuition for each camp is $150 and a child can both session for $250. All children who attend at least three days will receive an award and a certificate on their final day of camp.

The longest running Saturday chess class in Fremont reconvenes on January 5th. The FremontChess.com Chess Team is a very special chess program designed and taught by twenty-year professional chess coach Chris Torres. This class will provide experienced tournament players with instruction that will quickly increase their ability and understanding of chess. Participants will begin their afternoon by participating in an hour long chess class taught by Chris Torres. Students will then play 1 USCF rated chess game as part of the ongoing tournament and receive analysis of their play. The FremontChess.com Chess Team will meet every Saturday from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm and tuition for this class is only $180 for 10 classes.

Fremont, CA (PRWEB) April 19, 2014

Nearly every family has been touched by the disease known broadly as cancer. Every May, we set aside a date to honor our Mothers but this year, rather than just honoring Mothers, we can come together to help defend them against Breast Cancer at a chess tournament in Fremont, California. Chris Torres, the President of the Torres Chess and Music Academy feels that, “Chess is about making good choices. If you value your child’s chess education and hate cancer, the choice is easy. Come to our tournament in Fremont on May third.”

The Torres Chess and Music Academy is a nonprofit organization whose chess programs regularly produce top best scholastic chess players in the country. In 2013, Mission San Jose Elementary School, again, became the National Elementary Chess Champions. On May 3, 2014 the Torres Chess and Music Academy will be hosting a chess tournament in the fight against cancer at Mission San Jose Elementary School. All students who attend will receive awards and help raise money to fight breast cancer in honor of Mother’s Day.

This year’s tournament should raise even more money for breast cancer research thanks to a sponsorship by Steve and Kate’s Camp. Steve and Kate have been running the best summer activity camps for children since 1980. Steve and Kate’s Camp lets campers choose activities such as stop motion animation, soccer in an inflatable stadium, rock climbing on a 30 foot wall, bread making, knitting with bamboo needles, music recording in custom vocal booths, and pie throwing. A Steve and Kate representative will be on hand at the chess tournament to answer any questions about their awesome summer programs.

The Torres Chess and Music Academy will also be well represented at the May 3 chess tournament. Many of the TCAMA’s top coaches will be on hand to provide chess analysis and to otherwise assist in making the tournament an educational experience for all attendees. In addition, the Torres Chess and Music Academy will be providing live music and will have plenty of information available about summer chess activities in the area.

Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to participate in a fantastic chess event while celebrating our Mothers. For round times, and registration please visit the Torres Chess and Music Academy online.

Fremont Chess Schools Set New Standard for Success

May 12, 2010

Have you ever heard of Fremont, California? Chances are, if you follow scholastic chess in the United States, you have. Schools from Fremont have historically used schools from other California cities as punching bags in the local scholastic chess arena. Recently, there has been a major effort made in exposing the rest of the United States to California’s best kept chess secret.

In 2010, Weibel Elementary School tied for first in the K-3 Championship section at the USCF National Elementary Chess Championship in Atlanta, Georgia. Weibel Elementary School also finished third in the K-6 Championship section.  Weibel Elementary School was the only school to place in the top three of two different championship sections.

Not to be outdone by Weibel, The Mission San Jose Elementary School team placed second in the K-1 Championship Section, tied for fourth place in the K-3 Championship Section, finished third in the K-5 Championship Section and placed 9th in the K-6 Championship section.  Mission San Jose Elementary School was the only school at the 2010 National Elementary Chess Championship to place in the top ten of all four championship sections. All this just one year after winning the National Elementary (k-6) Chess Championship in 2009.

   With all this recent success it is natural that children from other areas are very interested in becoming a part of the Fremont chess scene. The summer is the perfect time for this to occur. Young chess players can find out about upcoming tournaments and ongoing chess clubs by visiting www.FremontChess.com.  Chess players can sign up for the Mission San Jose Elementary School Summer Chess Camp by visiting www.ChessAndMusic.com.
