Chess helps children learn to concentrate and improves logic-building skills. It teaches them to play by the rules and take responsibility for actions, as well as how to problem solve in an uncertain environment.

Chandigarh Chess Academy Chess class works on developing the right thinking process in children. Apart from teaching Chess themes and techniques, our main focus remains on the development of the children’s thinking process, temperament building, brain stimulation, logical thinking and mental toughness.
Children are first taken into the beginner course where they learn a basic level of understanding in the different stages of the game (Opening, Middle game and End game). Once they are familiarized with different stages of the games and ready to learn more advanced techniques then they have been shifted to an advanced level where there is more theory and fundamental training than practical.



Concentration, Logic and Problem Solving, memory improvement, development of the right thinking process, and mental toughness.
