"Bringing a group of elementary school kids to their 1st "official" tournament can cause some anxiety in them.  The Chess Dr. eased those concerns by running a well organized event with emphasis on good sportsmanship and having fun..."

-Daniel Acton
Ocoee (FL) Elementary School chess club coach

"...The kids were matched up with others of equal strength as much as possible so everyone had a chance to make some points for their team.  Communication with the parents was great, match-ups and results posted on site as well as sent electronically to coaches and sponsors..."

"During the past school year, Zellwood Elementary was proud to host a number of Chess Dr. chess tournaments. This was a choice of pride for our students and their parents. It was wonderful for our students to have the opportunity to be able compete with students from our school district and schools from other areas. The matches were exciting and it was inspiring to see children of all ages engaged with and excited about critical thinking."
