Covid-19 Update (June 26th, 2020):

      • Summer Camps: We have officially cancelled all of our summer camps.
      • School Year: We do not anticipate being able to run in person school year clubs during the 2020-2021 school year.
      • Learners Online: We will be launching version 2.0 of our Learners@Home Program in Mid to Late July, 2020.
      • Donate: We will soon be launching a fundraising campaign to help us make it through the next year so that we can continue to offer in person chess programs to students when it is safe to do so.

Our Mission Is

to spread the learning and enjoyment of chess to all kids in New Mexico. We believe that learning to appreciate and compete in chess helps children mature both intellectually and socially. Our approach uses chess to develop children’s analytical, social, and leadership skills for success in school and in life!
