With the popularity of video and social media-based games, which pose immediate gratification rewards, the staff at the Vancouver Chess School believes that chess study can better enhance certain developmental skills such as task focus, and planning which is rewarded more often in the long term. Chess can be fun and helpful for anyone, regardless of their skill level.
Certain studies have shown benefits ranging from raising a child’s IQ to preventing Alzheimer’s. The more widely recognized benefits though include the development of problem-solving skills, creativity, and memory. Visit our Why Chess page for more information on these.
A study of 4000 Venezualan students had shown significant improvement in IQ scores after 4 months of chess study.
Practice is important, but other activities rather than just playing will help as well. These include: learning chess strategies and tactics, game analysis of world champions and solving chess quizzes.
Tournaments are a fun way to benchmark, learning, as they are offered at all levels, much like other sports.
We offer 6 levels of instruction, from beginners who are new to chess, to national experts. We are able to offer the higher levels, as 5 of our instructors are certified Masters, and are former BC Champions. Some of our current students are among the top players in Canada for their age level!
We also host regular tournaments, and encourage speed chess, blindfold chess and blitz.
