Chess Builds Character.

Our coaches are dedicated to helping Baltimore’s youth learn the skills and strategies of chess to create flexible, creative thinkers.

We know that chess is much more than a game and watching our students flourish into lifelong learners drives us to learn and develop best practices for continued growth.
