Develop your child’s intellect through the fun game of chess!  Current research has shown a strong link between chess and academic performance in a variety of areas, including mathematics and language arts.  Also, chess has been proven to enhance motivation, concentration, focus, social skills, and creativity.

No previous knowledge of chess is necessary.  Each class will consist of a fun, interactive teaching period and guided practice time.  Both new and returning participants are welcome and will get to the next level under the guidance of an experienced Chess Scholar coach.  There will also be a chess competition with prizes towards the end of the season!  Each child will receive a participation medal and a chess keychain.
