Chess (K-5th)

Chess Wizards is one of the largest chess academies in the nation, with hundreds of programs at schools and park districts. Chess Wizards is offering specially designed after school classes that cater to all levels of chess ability. Each child is challenged by fun games and lessons from real Wizard teachers. We run a number of tournaments, school matches, and winter/summer camps to challenge our students. It is proven that chess enhances cognitive development in children, improves both verbal and mathematical skills, and increases all levels of academic performance! Playing chess stimulates the mind and helps children strengthen skills such as focusing, visualizing goals, abstract thinking, and forming concrete opinions.
