Why Teach Kids Chess?

By | Education | No Comments

Launch High School THANKS our awesome Chess Coach, George Krasnopoloskiy! Coach George enjoys working with the bright and talented students at Launch. He says when chess players are able to blur the game’s boundaries between social activity, competitive sport and educational lesson the real fun begins. He believes Launch students pose a huge challenge for other local high school chess teams because Launchers are training to become Colorado State Chess Champs.

Check out the Pro USA chess league match. It begins today!
