Here is a note from Coach William -
I am Chess Coach William Oliver, the City Coach of The Knight School Raleigh, a completely fresh and unique approach to teaching tournament chess to kids. Our approach is revolutionary and has enjoyed amazing success in its twelve years. As we arrive in the greater Raleigh area, I would love to be your chess coach and to bring this innovative new approach to your great kids!
The Knight School’s exclusively designed academic model and curriculum is revolutionary to the way chess is taught. Our focus is on providing an environment where learning and playing chess is fun and accessible to all. Sportsmanship is the key to a positive experience and we stress the importance of winning and losing graciously. But most of all we have fun! With exciting activities like “Toast Games,” “Daily Puzzlers,” “Zany Videos,” along with music, beads and wrist bands, the time will fly and you’ll wish for more.
We welcome all levels of playing and have on-going tournaments using colorful brackets. We use fun, constructive, and positive methods to build your chess skills as well as self-confidence.
The Knight School currently coaches chess in over one hundred elementary schools and all the coaches in The Knight School have passed background checks, are fully insured, and are high-energy instructors who demonstrate the highest levels of professionalism and classroom-management ability.
The Knight School approach is best explained by viewing our website at www.theknightschool.com. Our website provides the most vivid snapshot of the level of innovation, professionalism, high-energy, and amusement park-like fun that characterizes The Knight School chess.
