Washington D.C. Chess


      Thousands of elementary and middle school students have learned chess in our after school clubs and summer camps in DC since our very first club in the city in 2011. We've worked with public, private, and charter schools in Wards 2, 3, 5, and 6, but we'd be happy to do more!  Some students have won District championships but most of our students are new to chess and looking to learn a fun new game. Everyone starts as a curious beginner!

      If you don't see your school in our list of current schools below you can go here to set one up with us!  We also do tournaments every month nearby.
