For Grades K-5

Fridays (Library or Multi)

Cherry Chase PTA will once again be partnering with AcademiCare Institute to deliver an on-site After-School Chess Club using exclusive activity booklets and materials.  There will be opportunities to win medals, posters and trophies.

Playing chess is a lot fun. Did you know that while kids play chess they are actually thinking their way to success?  Children are naturally drawn to this fun and challenging game, especially when they learn from licensed USCF Chess Coaches whose approach is to teach age-appropriate skills in a fun and safe environment.

Chess helps young students:

  • Gain confidence
  • Strengthen problem-solving skills
  • Build discipline
  • Increase concentration
  • Learn to strategize, analyze and evaluate
  • Improve communication
  • Build memory skills
  • Learn sportsmanship
  • Develop critical, abstract and creative thinking skills
  • Learn to recognize patterns and develop tactics
  • Learn to have a lot of fun in the process
