Kids + Chess = Success | 2016 SVCC Kids Tournament Report

2016 SVCC Kids Tournament Was a Success!

 

Chess is gaining popularity in the Shenandoah Valley with more young chess players learning the game week after week.
 
In 2016 SVCC is continuing its chess education awareness campaign with more learning sessions and better access to training resources.
 
Participation in after-school chess programs is up, thanks to the efforts of veteran chess coach, Cliff Campbell.
