"Fortune favours the prepared mind"


This site is a resource for schools, organizers, teachers, supporters and players to establish and grow chess for scholastics.  Reference - SC Schools With Chess & Resources For School and Chess Club Organizers


“Chess is recognized as the ultimate game and is not simply a game but a learning tool for the development of the mind, and just happens to be in the form of a game. How fortunate we all are to have an easy method of exercising and developing much deeper thought processes in our minds while also amusing the simpler side of our nature.” - www.chess-poster.com
