In-school & after-school programs

Youth Chess League of Central Oklahoma provides free chess programs for students at Title I schools and at after-school programs that serve underprivileged children. We established three programs in the fall of 2015, and we plan to keep growing until every central Oklahoma kid has a chance to enjoy the benefits of this wonderful game.

Cost is $60 per student (based on 20 students) for a 16-week program with a professional instructor. Contact us to learn how we can bring chess to your child’s school, church, or homeschool community.
