"The first and most powerful gift Chess can provide is a self-confidence that transforms a child’s view of his or her potential.  The knowledge that you can compete, succeed, and enjoy yourself on an intellectual level applies to everything you undertake in life."


- Grandmaster Gary Kasparov, Former World Champion

"I'm so impressed with how excited both my son and daughter were after their first chess class with Vellotti's Chess Kids.  We got out the chess board that their grandfather hand-made for the very first time, and we haven't stopped playing since!  We even bought a magnetic chess set so we can play when we go camping too!"
