"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.
