The James H. Boyd Chess Club had a fabulous year with children in grades 3-5 participating, learning and enjoying the game of chess. The group, run by LI Chess Nuts along with the Boyd PTA, helped many children with no prior knowledge of chess to fall in love with the game! Students were inspired to play with their families and friends and by the end of the year, they were able to play tournament-style games with their peers.

“I can’t say enough about these children,” said club advisor Sara Siddiqui. “Some of them came to the club without any experience, and I applaud them for learning and playing chess. It builds self-confidence, patience and skill for all ages. I hope we continue to provide an avenue for chess instruction for all age groups.”
