Led by Coach Russ, ICN was founded with the vision of establishing a network of high performing chess programs, where each school embodies their own unique chess culture while still maintaining a network-wide commitment to excellence. 

Across the Impact Coaching Network, a "Team First" training approach will be emphasized and our coaches / leaders will collaborate with each partner program to strengthen and build their school’s community through a visibly vibrant and successful chess program.
