Learn Chess The Right Way
While Having Fun

The cognitive benefits of chess are as well-known as Bobby Fisher and the Queen’s Gambit on Netflix – But how difficult is it to learn chess? At Chess4Life, we believe that if chess is taught the right way, it is a fun & engaging game that can help kids develop important skills like focus, sportsmanship, respect, and planning!

Our carefully designed curriculum is built by National Master Elliott Neff and our team of coaches to empower your child to think about the best move in any position while avoiding bad habits. We genuinely care about your child and how they learn chess and guarantee that if you or your child are not happy with our program, we will make it right or give you your money back.

My son has been attending classes with Chess4Life for the past 2 years at least. He is now 10 years old, and he developed great skills for the game, but, most importantly, I can see how learning chess with such a solid organization had a very positive impact on his patience, focus and decision-making process.

My 2nd grader had a great experience with chess camp! The instructors were very encouraging and able to help kids navigate various platforms; they made the camp fun and informative. My son learned a lot and asked to do this again!

Thank you again for this amazing opportunity! I bragged about the program and the fun the students had at our county meeting. The students cannot stop talking about how much fun they had and some have even started planning a chess club for our school.
