Our Chess club provides children with a solid foundation on which to build and grow their skills of visualization and deductive reasoning. We have all ages from kindergarten to 5th grade. A child who is introduced to chess at a young age is likely to do better in school for years to come. Research shows that playing chess improves a child’s thinking, problem-solving, reading, and math scores. Educators and chess experts generally agree the first grade is the ideal time to introduce children to chess, although some as young as four or five may be ready to learn and play. It really helps children in building self-confidence. We hope to have your child join us!
