Greenwood Christian School Chess Club

Greenwood Christian School Chess Club Here in South Carolina, the beauty of chess as a teaching tool is that it stimulates children's minds and helps them to build these skills while enjoying themselves. All elementary, middle, and high school students welcome!

Academic Benefits: Focusing - Visualizing - Thinking Ahead - Weighing Options - Analyzing Concretely - Thinking Abstractly - Planning - Juggling Multiple Considerations Simultaneously None of these skills are specific to chess, but they are all part of the game. Meeting every Thursday (immediately after classes end) in the cafeteria until 4:00 PM. All ages & grades are welcome and encouraged to attend.

"Parenting a chess player may be harder than playing the game"

Soccer moms get all the attention. But what about the chess moms and dads who can't shrug off their outside voice outbursts when inside at a silent chess tournament? With an event that demands self-discipline, parenting a chess player is no easy task.
