  • Chess Kids was established 9 years ago to develop chess in schools through Australia. We have been overwhelmed by the interest generated around Adelaide in the last 6 months. More than 60 schools through Adelaide and regional South Australia received chess demonstrations during the past 3 months!
  • Chess Kids – Adelaide is now providing coaching at nearly 20 of the best Adelaide schools, including: Annesley, Immanuel, Seymour, Marryatville, Hackham South Primary and many more.
  • Chess Kids took a team of 18 successful players to the 2004 Australian Junior Championships in Perth. We provide high quality coaching as well as camps and other opportunities for young players to develop their skills.
