My son Jack has been attending the Elite Chess Academy since we moved here. He has been learning a lot while also having a lot of fun. He regularly participates in fun tournaments that the ECA has hosted. Our family is so happy to have found the ECA and we hope he continues to attend for years to come. Hopefully one day Jack will play on Coach DiOrio’s team in high school! - Remy K.

I have watched my son’s chess mind grow so much since attending the Elite Chess Academy. He is learning new concepts and theories that I have seen him put into action successfully in tournament situations. More importantly, he is having fun attending and has made great chess friends at the Academy. I highly recommend the Academy to anyone who has a child interested in learning more about chess. - Paul L.
