About the U.S. Chess Center

U.S. Chess CenterThe U.S. Chess Center is an award-winning non-profit educational charity. Since 1992 we have taught more than 35,000 children the rules, strategy, discipline, and etiquette of chess. Our teachers are all nationally certified chess coaches trained by David Mehler, one of the first Level V (highest level) coaches in the United States. We teach chess as a means of improving the academic and social skills of our students, so we emphasize sportsmanship and learning to think. Our students have won more than a dozen national championships (including two team championships for CRS) because we make learning chess fun.
