My son has been attending classes and tournaments at Vancouver Chess School for several years, starting in-person at his school, then, as he became more advanced, classes at the VCS facility and more recently on-line. They are well organized, pleasant to deal with, and have talented coaches/teachers.

My Son started attending their online classes for the past 4 months. This has been an exciting and insightful experience learning the nuances of the game, strategies and new ways of approaching a problem. The instructors are great - helpful, knowledgeable, personable and sincere. Their approach to teaching kids, keeping them engaged online and motivating them is second to none. I am very happy and fully supportive of anyone who wants to enroll their kids in this program. Thumbs up/Top notch :)

Vancouver Chess School is a very well run and well organized endeavour, and kudos to the dedicated people running it. We'd been looking for chess classes for our son for a while but what made the difference now was the opening of online classes which seem perfect for chess -- this way all games can be recorded, replayed, and studied later. All the coaches are extremely patient and kind with the kids, while at the same time offering very rigorous chess education. My son made enormous progress within mere months of starting classes, and his interest in chess went from 'passing' to 'completely hooked'. Thank you, VanChess!

The Camps are very interesting, you get to do a lot of fun chess activities, like class games, puzzles, and learn new openings. There are also CMA rated tournaments on Fridays.
