““Chess makes you smart,” a slogan of the U.S. Chess Federation (USCF). A growing body of research is showing that chess improves kids’ thinking and problem-solving skills as well as their math and reading test scores. Accordingly, communities across the country are racing to create after-school chess programs and start local chess clubs…”
http://www.parents.com/kids/development/intellectual/benefits-of-chess/Chess Club for Kids meets every Monday from 4-5:30pm, during the school year, for kids from 7 to 12 under the challenging guidance of master coaches. This will be our second year and we are looking for brand new students and students with any level of experience.
Member parent agreements insure the smooth functioning of the club for all. Please review the agreement here. We will have copies at Farmstand for your signature on your first Monday.
Why is chess the food you need to make you SUPER-POWERFUL?
Men,women, young, old are all invited to join us as mentor/coaches by applying to: JKloza@projectSHAREpa.org. This would include high school and college students in our community.
