Chess Club

Practice chess in Bryant’s very own club with a chance to play in regional tournaments

Registration Closed

Bryant Chess Club is a large, active club run by parent volunteers and taught by hired professional chess coaches.  It is open to Bryant students Kindergarten-5th grade of all skill levels to meet, play and learn more about chess.  Students are encouraged to play at regional tournaments.

Studies have shown a strong correlation between learning to play chess and academic performance. A landmark study by Smith and Cage (2000) posited that students who received chess instruction scored significantly higher on all measures of academic achievement, including math, spatial analysis, and non-verbal reasoning ability (p. 19-26). Other findings in various locations around the United States and Canada indicate that chess results in improved scores on standardized tests in both math and reading.
