Attention All Kids! If you are looking for a great way to get your parents off your back for all the
time you spend on video games, then chess is the perfect solution! The thrill, strategy, and competition encountered in video games are very similar to what you will find on the chessboard. You will do battle, set up defense, and achieve victory against impossible odds. But it is not all fun and games. Chess can actually strengthen your most important “muscle” – YOUR BRAIN!! Chess is one of the few activities that utilize both the right and left side of the brain. It is well documented that children who play and study chess regularly experience improvement in school performance — and this will certainly please your parents. Chess is fun, chess is exciting, and chess will help you develop sportsmanship, character, and problem solving abilities.
We hope to see you at the club and perhaps at one of our upcoming tournaments. Follow the link HERE to get all the information about our next Scholastic Chess
