  Scholastic Chess Club at your children's school

NEW: Inland Chess Academy now has a Chess Center located at 920 N. Argonne Rd., Suite 120 in Spokane Valley offering after school club sessions Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for students who attend schools which do not offer after school chess clubs.

School chess clubs meet once weekly for one hour, either before or after school. Students develop chess skills with the coach's assistance through lectures, exercises, and tournament style play. Tuition includes subscriptions to Chess Magnet School's online self study chess school and learning and play website.

Parents are encouraged to attend weekly chess club sessions, no charge.

More schools will be added as coaches become certified. If you do not see your child's school, please ask your principal to contact Inland Chess Academy.
