Core Benefits of Chess:

• Playing chess teaches students to become thinkers, to develop an inner voice that constantly ask questions and finds solutions.
• Chess fosters personal development and growth, encouraging self-discipline, patience, decision-making and sportsmanship, all necessary attributes of the successful chess player.
• And finally, chess requires students to consistently give their best effort, whether ahead or behind, there is always something to be learned. Chess is the ultimate game to exercise our cognitive abilities and of course, have fun!
