Pawns

Absolute beginner students. These are kinder and 1st graders who do not have any chess experience at the start of the school year. Like learning any other language, children at this age are able to learn chess at an astonishing speed. Many of these students quickly become strong players. Some are able to defeat their parents and older students by the end of the school year. Students in this group move up to Knights after their first year in the club.
