Company Name
Chess Odyssey, Inc.
Company Blurb
Chess Odyssey was founded in 2002 to help kids grow as chess players, and—more importantly—as people. That mission guides all our programs—chess clubs, chess camps, tournaments, and private instruction. It runs through our curriculum and program design, and is the foundation for our twin measures of success: learning and laughter. Some of our kids are state champions. (We've had the honor of training 100 of them.) Others are just learning how knights move. Most are somewhere in between. We treasure each and every one of them. Happy, excited kids who are growing as people and as chess players are what we are all about.

Chess Club

Description
Two decades of experience teaches us the four elements of a great chess club are recreational play with friends, formal competition, appropriate instruction and skill-building exercises of various kinds. Chess Odyssey clubs meet for 90-minutes to allow us to effectively incorporate all these elements. For practical reasons, most instruction is done in a group setting. However, our coaches constantly watch for "teachable moments" with individual students (or small groups of them.) Our skill building exercises include paper-based puzzles, positions to play out, and visualization exercises. Chess Odyssey clubs are run by trained, professional chess coaches. Students will, as much as possible, be divided into appropriate groups depending on their age, experience and playing strength. You'll find further details and registration links on our website.
