At F7 Chess Club, we don’t just teach the game of chess, we teach our students
how to think and analyze while playing chess. We practice thinking out loud during the game, we
share the thought process with each other and watch instructors play the game while talking
through the logic behind each move.
Success is not just about collecting medals and trophies though, it is about achieving personal goals and personal growth. It is about taking responsibility, playing fair, and learning to manage your emotions, win or lose. The parallels between these skills in chess and in life are great for developing young minds.
“We strive to create successful players because we believe when our students succeed, we succeed! This is why our instruction isn’t just about giving students the principles of chess, it is about giving them the tools to work within the rules to play like an innovator. We want our students to discover new positions and explore new solutions. This is what creates successful chess players!”
