The Vancouver Chess school took my son’s interest in chess and sparked an obsession. My son used to believe most things are “easy” or he would have difficulty with failures. However, this chess school has really taught him how to have a “growth” mindset learning about all aspects of failures and sportsmanship. He now sees challenges as an opportunity to grow!

My son wanted to take chess lessons last year before the lockdown, so I signed up for the spring term for him. I was concerned about the effectiveness of the online lessons, but it has turned out to be a great experience for my son. He learned and improved a lot during the past year. The school has a wonderful website for the students to practice and to learn through fun exercises. It also offers many tournaments for the students to play games with those who are same levels. Two good friends of my son also signed up and have had good experiences after they heard from our experiences. If you are interested in private lessons, the instructors have been good. A very organized online platform, would definitely recommend for all levels of chess players.

The best teacher, patience, my child learned here from 2017, not only learns to play chess, but also exercises how to deal with various challenges, how to judge the improvement of ability, so that now he is a volunteer and know how to encourage other children to study together. Don't give up when it is difficult.

The best chess school in Vancouver! My son has been leaning chess in VCS more than three years and he enjoys it very much. The VCS not only holds regular tournaments for different level chess players but some challenges with coaches.. I strongly recommend VCS. Ps.coaches are very nice and professional and the customer service Joyce also is a sweet and patient girl

Great place, both before and post-Covid. My son has been attending for 3 years and has made great progress. They have lots of tournaments and camps. There's a clear system in place to track performance and progress, the website is very well organized and allows parents to monitor their children's activities in classes and tournaments. VCS managed to transition to online very well after Covid, in fact it's at least as fun as before, according to my son. All in all a highly recommended place for kids to learn chess.
