Checkmate Chess by Parinama Academy

Travisso Chess Club/Classes
Chess - is the oldest sport in the world. It's not about Kings, Queens, and Rooks, but rather quadrants and coordinates, thinking strategically and foreseeing consequences. It's about lines and angles, weighing options, and making decisions. Chess might be the perfect teaching and learning tool. The game of chess increases higher-level thinking skills, math, and reading skills and builds self-confidence.

Research shows a strong correlation between learning to play chess and academic achievement. Students who received chess instruction scored significantly higher on all measures of academic achievement, including math, spatial analysis, and non-verbal reasoning ability.

Professionals run Parinama Academy Chess classes to promote increased knowledge and understanding of the game of chess as an art and an intellectual sport. This club allows students to practice their chess skills and have fun playing. Class time is divided between lessons and practice games. Lessons range from basic rules to advanced tournament strategies. All chess supplies provided.  

If your kid doesn't know how to play, we will have you play before your first month ends. Students will have the opportunity to play in free tournaments held inside the Parinama campus.

Open to all. No previous chess knowledge is necessary to join- All skill levels are welcome!
