Led by Coach Russ, our Impact Coaching Network (ICN) coaches and leaders will build and develop thriving chess programs that align with each school's unique and vibrant community. We will work closely with teachers, parents, PTA's, school leadership and the over school community to build a program we can all celebrate. 

ICN will engage each school's entire student body through our classroom curriculum partnership giving greater ability to recruit and develop our after-schools club and ultimately competitive chess teams! 

Our vision is to leverage each unique program into a network of other high performing schools where there is an overall community wide culture of team spirit, pride, diversity and chess excellence.
