Chess Wizards offers a fun and intellectually-challenging Chess education and tournament experience to children of all ages and abilities. Our Chess Classes are held at schools, clubs, and Park Districts throughout Chicago and the Chicagoland area.
The adaptive Chess Wizards program is designed for all levels of young chess players. The kids are divided into Novice Wizards, Intermediate Wizards, and Advanced Wizards. As a child masters his or her current wizardry program, he or she is promoted to the next level.
