There are some great sites dedicated to the game of checkers spread across the internet, many of which show up in the links section. These sites contain lots of great information, but they all seem to lack something for the beginner. The goal of my site is to provide an easy to follow guide for the beginner on improving their playing ability. These pages will guide interested players from learning the rules and basic concepts of checkers to advanced topics such as Openings, mid game structures and end game play. This will be the hub for tournament coverage as well!
More content will be added weekly!
