As part of the early fall class session, the Wilton Family Y is offering several new enrichment programs for young adults.
Chess Class is taught by the Chess Club of Fairfield County, which provides professional teachers and elite chess players to deliver the curriculum, which was created by Scholastic Director Daniel Lowinger. The class is designed to build logical and critical thinking, develop patience concentration and connect students with the evolution of chess strategy. A beginner level for eight- to 10-year-olds is scheduled for Tuesdays 4:30-5:30, and an intermediate level for ages 10-13 meets Tuesdays from 3:30-4:30. The cost is $170 for Y members, $270 for program members.
