INTRODUCTION
The Chess Federation of Canada is a charitable organization whose mandate is to

promote and encourage the knowledge, study and play of the game of chess in Canada. The
C.F.C. organizes National Championships and provides funding for the winners to go on to
the World Championships. In addition, the C.F.C. has sent a team to the World Chess
Olympiad each time it has been held (every second year) since 1964.

The purpose of this manual is to encourage the playing of chess by young people.
Chess has been shown to improve academic performance. A youngster taking part in a chess
program develops:
• critical thinking
• logic, reasoning, and problem solving abilities
• memory, concentration and visualization skills
• confidence, patience and determination
• poise
• self-expression
• good sportsmanship
• children who participate in chess programs improve their self-esteem

It is not necessary for the teacher using this manual to be a good chess player - or even
a chess player at all. The course has been designed to take the teacher step-by-step through
the basics and onto more advanced strategies. It is hoped that we have done our job well, but
of course this is the first edition of this manual (experimental, if you will) and there is always
room for improvement. If you have any comments or questions concerning this manual, we
may be contacted by regular mail:

The author is a four-time Olympiad team member, and holds the title of International Chess
Master, which he received for his results in international competition. He has taught chess to
grade school children individually and in groups for almost a decade.

Duplication of the contents of this manual is permitted within schools for educational
purposes only.

This number shows the total
points scored by the player. In
this case, Mary Mate won in
round one, so she gets one point.

The pairing number of the
opponent played in the round in
question is located at the top right
hand corner of the box. Here,
Samantha played against player
number 8, Tom Rook, in round
one.

Players� scores are cumulative. In this
case, Bill Check lost in round one,
then received a bye (for one point) in
round two. He now has one point out
of two rounds. If he were to win his
next game, he would have �2� in the
box for round three (0 + 1 + 1 = 2).

This is the colour that the player
received for the round in
question. Here Bill Check was
White in round one, and thus a
small �W� appears in the top
left hand corner of the box.

This is the player�s
pairing number. Each
player has a unique
number in the
tournament. Here
Mary has pairing
number 1.
