PS 111 Chess Club & Team

Program Vision:

From complete beginners to advancing tournament players, our goal is that all PS 111 players can experience both the joy & significant social/educational benefits of learning and playing chess. Our PS 111 Team will prepare for local, City, State & National Competitions.

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

ICN class groupings (subject to change based on program enrollment):

  • Rooks: 300+ USCF

  • Bishops: U300 USCF Advancing players with an eye towards competition

  • Pawns: K-1 introductory coaching and play

* Each PS 111 program member will receive a team shirt and also a gold membership

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.
