How It works!

The philosophy of our organization is built upon a basic chess tenet: “Think about the move before you make it as opposed to making a move and wishing you had thought about it”. Our instructor, Mr. Carl Wright has strong ties to the community and over 40 years’ experience as a chess teacher.


Our Program

Chess flexes some of our best mental muscles. We can draw many similarities, and differences, between the game of chess and the game of basketball.

Though it requires a different set of skills, many of the life lessons are the same. We encourage participants of all ages to play with those community members who are more skilled than they, in the hopes of improving their skills and developing their critical thinking skills.

This is where the phrase "Think about the move before you make it!" comes from.
