Chess in Schools

“Chess trains logical thinking. It teaches how to make decisions, trains memory, strengthens will power, motivates children to win, and teaches them how to deal with defeat. It’s the only school subject that can do all of this.” (ChessBase/Chess News)

Our School Programs

Dynamic Chess has been the driving force behind making our son one of the top players in the state. Will’s commitment to skill, sportsmanship, and making chess fun has helped him excel on many levels.

We offer morning, afternoon, and after-school chess programs. These classes are intended to increase the chess knowledge of every child regardless of their starting level. Additionally, we hope that each child can apply the overall thinking skills learned from the chess program to other areas within their education in a positive manner.
