CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!


 Our top Chesskids will appear here each week. If you’d like to see your name on the leaderboard, log into Chesskid and start doing puzzles, lessons, videos and workouts! (Under the “Learn” tab) Parents: Help your player sharpen his or her chess skills FAST by encouraging him or her to be active on Chesskid.com (or on the Chesskid app). Chesskid tactics puzzles, videos, and lessons are a wonderful tool for building foundational chess skills. And playing on Chesskid (with friends in the Banner Bombers online club) is lots of fun!
