The Roosevelt Island Youth Center has partnered with the Roosevelt Island Branch Library to provide a chess program for participants of the center. The Chess Club will teach fundamental to advance chess elements in addition to promoting educational values that can be learned through chess. Each session will focus on fundamentals while incorporating lessons on critical thinking, planning, and logic. Participants are encouraged to demonstrate sportsmanship and strive for success in the classroom as well as over the chessboard during practice and competition.
Club sessions are held in the Youth Center at Sportspark (250 Main Street), every Monday from 3:30 - 5:30 PM.
The Chess Club is sponsored by the Roosevelt Island branch of the New York Public Library (NYPL).
