JAXCC Chess Development Program for club members
Our program is one of the best for developing solid beginner to intermediate level youth players. Last semester we had 55 kids enrolled and ended with a 40 player tournament. Our goal is to present chess in a way that creates a love for the game and skills improvement in ever player. Along the way, many of them become "chess buds" who socialize and get together away from chess. Our US Chess Certified instructors are great with kids and are tournament players themselves. Our kids continue to astound us with winning performances at local, state and national tournaments. See images from last month's National Tournament

This will be our last meeting in this location, Starbucks on Rickey Road across from Mandarin Publix. We have two possible new locations both in the Southside/Baymeadows area as most of the regular players are not coming out of Mandarin. We will continue to adjust in hopes of finding the right balance. This has been Jacksonville's only weeknight rated play since 2015. We hope the new location will bring out more players.
If you have another location where you want to start playing, please email us at email@example.com.
We're asking for people who will volunteer one or two rounds coverage in the Girls Club Room on Saturday or Sunday. Friday is filled already. We also need people to rotate coverage at the Women's Chess table near Chess.com's table.
We're closing out the year with a bang! Location: San Jose Church of Christ (small chapel) 6233 San Jose Blvd, JAX, FL
