For many students, playing in chess tournaments is the next logical step after taking classes.


In addition to offering them an arena to hone their chess skills, tournaments provide an opportunity for students to test their mettle and appreciate their accomplishments. All of the skills fostered through chess classes, come to the fore as they have fun matching wits with their peers.


Students gain valuable experience with life lessons such as winning, losing and simply learning to enjoy the process of any endeavor, competitive or not.
