Ross Colby, a nationally ranked expert and United States Chess Federation tournament director, has coached our team to several national and state championships. The TPS chess program has four levels: rookie, intermediate, experienced, and tournament. These levels move from learning rules to complex theory, tactics, and analysis. We learn how to annotate our games and play on chess clocks. And we always find time for variant games, including Take Me, Dragon Chess, and, of course, BUGHOUSE!
