"More than a game, it's our culture"
 Our philosophy is to emphasize sport and fun and provide as much chess instruction as a child can bear...but not overload...by providing supervised, spirited play, each student associates Chess with fun, and therefore larger numbers of them ultimately excel or at least become proficient in the great, significant, game of chess.

Chess NYC Testimonials

Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that I thought the guys working at the 151 Earth Day tournament did a great job! The "atmosphere was calm and fun and happy. The coaches were patient and inspiring. The space was great, lots of room for the players and the families. There were a few tears of course because for every win there was a loss, but all the kids went home happy with their trophies. It was a great experience and I look forward to the next one!" - Tournament Parent
