PS 889 Chess Club

From complete beginners to advancing tournament players our goal is that all PS 889 players can experience both the joy & significant social/educational benefits of learning and playing chess. Our PS 889 Team will prepare for local, City, State & National Competitions. Our in-person programming will match players into groups based on skill, interest level & age. This allows coaches to identify and create the right training environment for each player (complete beginner - advanced competitors).


NIA Established 1981

Providing programs that include extra time for help with homework, performing and visual arts, physical education, and more enables us to close the opportunity gap that many students face. Creating a seamless day between traditional school and our after-school programs enhances learning, and supports social and emotional growth in our participants.
