Setting the Mind on Fire
Chess Start offers chess instruction throughout the Greater Lafayette area to improve education through chess. Our on-campus beginner scholastic courses are offered at your child’s campus and are taught weekly throughout the year. The sport of chess has been shown by several major studies to improve focus, concentration, and enhance your child’s analytical and synthetic thinking skills.
A 2-year study conducted in New York by IBM found that learning chess improves reading test scores and reading performance in elementary school.
The hour long weekly meetings are similar to team practices and are broken into a 20 – 25 minutes of a structured chess lesson and 30 minutes of scrimmage time. The semester-long curriculum covers everything from introductory rules to basic strategies to advanced concepts. Your child will be exposed to the world of chess in a fun, safe, and educational environment. Chess Start will also hold occasional weekend tournaments, or competitions. All members of the team are invited to play. These competitions are scheduled periodically throughout the semester, primarily on weekends. The tournaments are non-elimination. Byes are scheduled absences for any part of the competition & may be taken to avoid scheduling conflicts. Please see the tournament section for additional information or visit us on-line at our Tournaments page.
