Chris’ first book was Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess, which is a very good book for beginners.

Yes, Chris will teach any age and all ages are welcome at the chess club, we have mainly kids, but adults do come and are always welcome.
TOURNAMENT QUESTIONS FOR NEW PLAYERS
What is the USCF?
The USCF stands for the United States Chess Federation. When you become a member you will receive a Chess Life for Kids magazine, Membership Card, and after the first tournament you will be nationally rated.
Can I watch my child play his/her tournament games?
Unfortunately, No, but you are allowed to stay in the practice room to see them between games. This applies to most scholastic events.
Does my child play the next game even if they lose the game?
Yes, the children will play all the games regardless of the result. Equal scores will play together.
