Chess is offered at SMARTS for all skill levels, beginner to advanced, and children in the class are paired for games accordingly. The Frisco Chess club was started by SMARTS for the convenience of the parents in 2012. Our caring and knowledgeable instructors know how to engage kids and help them think critically to win a game of chess. Frisco Chess Club offers its own USCF affiliated tournaments throughout the year so that your child can practice their new knowledge at a real competition!
Mr. Kevin and Mr. Quaitemes (Mr. Q) run our chess program and have been our tournament directors. They are both professional chess coaches and are well known in DFW chess circles. They have a combined experience of over 50 years of teaching chess to kids. They both have directed USCF rated tournaments for over 7 years for Frisco Chess Club. They have demonstrated improved chess skills in our beginner as well as intermediate students.
