PS11 Tournament a Big Success

On June 1, PS11 hosted our second ever chess tournament, and we had a fantastic turnout. Over 200 kids showed up to play and it was a great day of chess. The Chelsea Chessmates scored big , placing second in both the U300 and U1000 sections and cinching first place in the U700 section. A huge shoutout to the ICN coaching team and all the coaches for making this happen. Don't forget to sharpen those chess skills at the chess camp (link  https://impactcoachingnetwork.org/team-camps-1/teamtrainingcamp) this summer.
