Why Chess?

There are a lot of articles that talk about the benefits of playing chess. To name a few, chess brings people together and builds friendship, exercises your brain and develops problem-solving skills, and also helps children to focus and remain calm under pressure.


With all being said, chess is a very fun game! It’s loved by people around the world for more than 1000 years!

They are either well-known chess coaches in the GTA with decades of experience and proven records, or rising Canadian young masters who grew up right here in our communities. They are all very successful in their chess careers and are passionate and eager to share their knowledge and experience.
