2018 Winter Training Program / Kids Club

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
