“Every chess master was once a beginner.” – Irving Chernev

Every month, The Burbank Chess Club for Kids provides a chance for children and families to socialize while developing chess skills!

Join our expert volunteer teachers on the last Saturday of every month for an opportunity to learn the game. Research shows that chess may increase problem-solving skills, boost concentration, improve memory, and more!

Games will be rapid chess where each player gets 15 minutes to complete their game. We will provide the game boards and pieces, you come ready to have fun! All abilities are welcome. Children younger than 8 will need to be accompanied by an adult helper.
