Upcoming Tournament October 11, 2014: SMARTS Club Chess Tournament
BGS Chess is dedicated to providing chess instruction and materials in a professional and courteous manner. Our goal is to provide caring and intelligent chess instruction to children in any environment - school, day care, recreational center, park, home or institution.
We know that through chess children learn important skills that will remain useful for the rest of their lives. Concentration, critical thinking, pattern recognition as well as sportsmanship are all part of the experience that playing chess provides.
Chess is also excellent for enhancing social skills. Children are taught to shake hands before and after a game, to show respect for their opponents and to accept responsibility for their actions. When children win chess games, they begin to believe in themselves. In fact the most important thing chess does for many children is to build confidence. A confident child is a child heading for success.
Our teachers have a vast amount of experience in chess education, in addition to having competed at the highest levels of chess. BGS Chess works in cooperation with administrators, teachers, parents and counselors to provide a high level of chess instruction to children in any setting.
For all Levels of play BSG recommends Chess 101
