Excellence in Chess
Leadership for Girls
The “Promoting to Queens” program includes only girls who have shown that they are serious about chess. Originally, the program was slated to be bigger, but CYCL was not awarded the City of SCV grant for which we had applied. The scaled back program will still offer free chess instruction and, just as importantly, advice from local women on a variety of topics. They will meet 7-8 times over the next year.
Girls who are interested in this program in the future should work hard this year to improve their game. Selections for next year will be made in the Spring of 2017
