“I use Chess4Life with my after school club of 10-12 year olds, and I can confidently say that without the program there'd be no club. The program is user-friendly--for a chess master or chess novice, engaging for the kids, and logical in its scope & sequence. I've seen so much growth in my kids' character and chess ability in the last 3 months and can't wait to see more!"
