Edinburgh Chess Academy (ECA) is the very first of its kind not only within Scotland, but also the United Kingdom. Our aim at the ECA is to improve concentration and intellectual ability through chess.
From complete beginner to internationalists, children learn chess in a fun and welcoming environment through chess master and national coach, Andrew Green.
While there are some opportunities for children to receive chess tuition in the form of private lessons and after school clubs in Scotland, the ECA is the only place where children can physically attend classes with other children and learn chess in a modern way using a mixture of lectures, technology and over-the-board chess.
Online Group Classes
Weekly classes are a terrific way to learn chess as children make friends and enjoy competing against one another. Classes are based on strength, and as a child progresses, they move up classes.
Chess in Schools
ECA can provide a tutor to visit your school and teach classes either within or after school times. Click below if you want to find out more about the work that we do in schools.
If you think that you would benefit from one-one tuition, ECA provides coaches who can help you to progress your chess knowledge through Skype or face-face lessons. Click below to find out.
