YOUR BEST CHESS (YBC) delivers a Chess experience like no other.  Our name defines who we are, what we do, how we do it and who we do it for--every student, every class, every semester, every scholastic tournament and every camp.  Our approach is based on 55 years of combined playing/teaching experience--training Chess students of all ages and skill levels.  The YBC program is designed to challenge every student.  We have developed a fun, interesting, proven, interactive curriculum--including class tournaments--enhancing the skills necessary to succeed in both Chess and life's daily challenges.  Are you ready?

 
 
 
 

Our objectives for ALL "Your Best Chess" students:

Sign up for a "Your Best Chess" class at your school.

Every one-hour class consists of a structured lesson (all skill levels are taught separately). Groups are given ample time to play actual games (youngsters in these age brackets need some unstructured time or they interpret enrichment programs as an extension of school). Plenty of time is allocated for questions and answers at the end of each class to reinforce what has been taught that day.

Our final class in every session is what we refer to as "Tournament Trophy Day". All of our chess players will engage in a four-round tournament followed by the presentation of trophies that everyone will have earned!!!! That’s right…each student will be rewarded with a trophy by simply demonstrating that they are actively learning chess!!!!! What could serve as a better learning environment?!?!?!
