Wouldn’t it be great if there was a fun, portable, and safe activity that could teach children critical thinking, tactical, and strategic skills all in one perfect package? There is, and it’s called chess!
Most of us know chess as a board game between two players. But we have come to know that chess is so much more than just a game! Besides being incredibly fun and exciting, chess is an educational activity that carries the benefits of:
- Critical thinking
- Tactical thinking; learning how to think ahead and seeing cause & effect
- Recognizing consequences and taking accountability for actions
- Learning how to take calculated risks
- Time management
Learning chess helps children develop confidence, patience, sportsmanship, and problem-solving skills. These tools will help them succeed in the classroom and in life.
Our Chess Knights Institute takes a super-fun and modern approach to learning the ancient game using a combination of electronic and over-the-board learning methods. Throughout their chess learning journey, children will have fun and reap its benefits without even realizing it. By the end of it, they’ll play in a live tournament and maybe even beat their parents! They’ll also learn a skill they can enjoy for life.
For those children who find chess an activity that they hope to pursue as a long-term commitment, our team is ready to take active steps and help your child pursue chess at a national level.
