Playing chess stimulates the mind and helps children strengthen skills such as focusing, visualizing goals, abstract thinking and forming concrete opinions. Chess Wizards is one of the largest chess academies in the nation, with hundreds of programs at schools and park districts. Chess Wizards offers after-school classes that cater to all levels of chess ability. Each child is challenged by fun games and lessons from instructors (called “Wizards”). Wizards provide all the materials necessary for your child to participate in the class.
