Why Choose Us

Our kids don't just stare on boards all day, they also have all sorts of fun with other kids and still be champions.

The DIG Chess Team consists of motivated players who practice weekly and participate in competitive chess tournaments! Every student who has joined our team has significantly improved their rating/chess skills by end of the season. We started the DIG Chess Team back in January of 2022. Since then, more than 100 students have joined our team.

Had the opportunity to see it all happening in front of me, it was very refreshing to see how excited and engaged the kids were. Absolutely a great program to have around that works with kids from all over.
