---> Sign up now for Chess and Coding Camp - Limited Space

LegacySportsCHESS1_800w.png

For one half of the day, campers will learn how to evolve their chess game. Whether your child is an absolute beginner or a strong tournament player, we have the right curriculum and teaching methods to keep him or her engaged, learning, and having fun; including an in-house chess tournament where all students will get a medal, and the first place winner receives a trophy!

Through chess, children will develop analytical, logical, and decision-making skills.  Research has shown that test scores improved by 17.3% for students regularly engaged in chess classes, compared with only 4.6% for children participating in other forms of enriched activities. Our camp will be taught by U.S. Candidate Master John Crissman.  John has taught chess professionally for over seven years and in over 30 different schools.  He loves working with students of all ages and skill levels.

Campers will spend the other half of the day engaged in a variety of athletic activities, featuring dozens of Multi-Sport Madness games like Treasure Island, Hand Hockey, Illinois Jones, Countdown Dodgeball, Battleship, Capture the Flag and soccer. These activities ensure that campers learn how to communicate with each other and work as a team to accomplish their goals.

Our camps will run each day from 8:30am-4:00pm.  We ask that each camper bring their own lunch. Please remember to exclude any foods that contain any nuts.

LegacySportsCHESS2_800w.png

Legacy Sports activities will take place at The Tennis and Fitness Centre located at 301 West Lake Street. Code Play Learn's activities will take place across the street at 132 N. Ridgeland Avenue.
