Advanced Classes

What: We started a private advanced kids group class and it has been showing to be effective and enjoyable for the current group in it, and we have decided to open it up to adults as well. The current group consists of stronger kid players primarily aged 12-15 rated 1000-1300. We feel like adult players would enjoy it and benefit from it too.
