Currently the Space Coast Chess Foundation does not offer group or individual instruction, with the exception of free Seminars that are offered as part of our annual Space Coast Open Chess Festival. For information on these seminars, refer to information on the festival.

As a service to the community, we will provide information on this page about chess classes and coaches in the Brevard County area. The providers of these services are independent from the Space Coast Chess Foundation. We assume no responsibility for the accuracy of the information provided or for any aspects of the services provided.
