Not all artists are Chess players, but all Chess players are artists

(Marcel Duchamp)

Chess is a sea in which a gnat may drink and an elephant may bathe

(Hindu proverb)


Long Island Chess Kids was started by FIDE International Master Milos Scekic who decided after more than 20 years of playing chess professionally, to share and pass his knowledge to the youngest in our Long Island community.

We know that playing chess has proven to help students enhance their creativity, improve their power of concentration, develop and expand critical thinking skills, boost memory and retention, and achieve superior academic performance. Additionally, chess has been shown to augment problem-solving capabilities, provide cultural enrichment, advance intellectual maturity, and enhance self-esteem. We know that these are qualities that school administrators, parents, and teachers desire for their students.
