Q300 Chess Team

Last Updated on

Q300 Chess is in its third year of parent organization, and is a fun interactive culture-first group with a positive, energetic and transparently competitive edge at ‘Away’ Tournament

Chess teaches many things. Chief among them in young students is ownership and the adventure of growth. Ownership of 1) decision-making process, 2) decisions, 3) outcomes of those decisions, 4) analysis of those outcomes, 5) learning, 6) application of those lessons . This is the blueprint of the never-ending adventure of growth that presents itself across countless areas of development – academically, socially, emotionally, athletically, creatively – and is experienced in the process: chess game #1 → post-game coaching/analysis → chess game #2.
