Chessmates is a small organization created by individuals who fell in love with chess as kids, grew up to be Masters, and found happiness in passing on their knowledge of chess and life to future generations.
Chessmates' mission is not to prioritize success in chess but rather success in life. Students range from absolute beginners to Masters—kids who have never competed in tournaments and students who have won multiple state and national high school championships. Most importantly, every child learns the importance of being good in character before being good at anything else.
Chessmates offers online classes, virtual tournaments, after-school enrichment, and private tutoring.
