It’s no secret chess is a great workout for your mind.  Studies have shown that chess improves cognitive thinking which in turn improves school grades, and besides, it’s a lot of fun!  One after-school program is helping kids improve their lives, through this very popular board game.

Coach Ron

"The Evans" Method!

Coach Ron
Coach Ron

The program, dubbed “The Evans Method” by the United States Chess Federation, includes instruction, formal and casual play. Students receive prizes at the end of each class to reward positive participation and trophies or medals at the end of each session. Their program (once featured on The Tonight Show) has produced national champions at every scholastic level.

Beginners are welcome! Chess is a great workout for the mind utilizing continuous problem-solving with changing conditions. Students learn to think ahead, evaluate multiple alternatives and anticipate consequences. They improve spatial reasoning, visual memory and attention span while learning good judgment, reasoning power and self-confidence. Studies have shown that chess improves cognitive thinking which in turn improves school grades.
