By registering on this site, parents give permission for Wood Enrichment Services to take photos of their child and publish them in any chess material.


Our chess activities are a great experience for all students to develop their thinking skills and learn life-long skills of dealing with the success and failure of competition.   By being exposed to players with similiar ability all over the United States, social skills become highly developed and students become very motivated learners.  It is important for those limited funds to have the same opportunity as others in the club.  Our scholarship program helps in many areas.  Consider donating.
