PS 10 Chess Club & Team

Program Vision:

From complete beginners to advancing tournament players our goal is that all Brooklyn Gladiators players can experience both the joy & significant social/educational benefits of learning and playing chess. Our PS 10 Team will prepare for local, City, State & National Competitions.

Players are matched into groups based on skill, interest level & grade. This allows coaches to identify and create the right training environment for each player. (complete beginner - advanced competitors)

Approximate class groupings:

  • Kings - 400 + USCF

  • Queens - U 400 USCF with a eye towards competition

  • Knights - Social developmental play

  • Pawns - Kindergarten, introductory coaching & play

Players will meet in the gym directly after-school. From there they will have a light snack in the cafeteria. Training and play will take place in classrooms onsite at PS 10. Pickup will occur at 5 PM in the gymnasium. 

Lateral movements will occur, as we experiment with class grouping and activities to identify the optimal training opportunities for our players. Players will be promoted throughout the season as coaches feel fit. 

A high emphasis on participation, engagement and self-study will be placed on our team groups. 

PS 10 will have a weekly opening meeting, where past weeks success is recognized, the upcoming events are emphasized and expectations and team spirit is reinforced.

Program leadership will ensure a single thread of PS 10 team spirit and standards in each class. Coaches will get to know each player in the program and be able to speak on each ones strengths and weaknesses as their relationship with the program evolves over time.

We want each player in our weekly training to feel connected to the program and enjoy pride in the program. Recognizing collective success is encouraged and serves as inspiration to players from all classes and groups.

* Even as we continue to grow our program and competitive team, there remains the opportunity for more social, less competitive play as well.

We will continue to welcome all students and find the right balance for each and every one. We want everyone to engage with the chess program at their comfort level, where the entire student body can enjoy the great benefits of this incredible game.
