Chess camps are in full swing!! We have a special going on all Summer where if your student attends a chess camp then you get a free chess assessment. The assessment is a perfect way to see where your child is at with their chess.

This guy earned 24th in state (out of at least 150 in his division). He only lost one of the 6 rounds he played, and made it through two rounds and a 3.5 hour karate belt test on Day 1 (with 3 half point byes for the rounds be missed). The team took 11th place in his division (K-3) and 2nd place in K-6. Super proud of all they accomplished this weekend! #chess #SSKYchess #chessemporium #governorscup2018

The last qualifiers are done and the Governor's Cup is here! This weekend is our championship and hopefully your students have earned their chance to play. There will be tons of side events between each round as well as a bughouse and parent tournament. We can't wait to see everybody there. #chess #chessemporium #chesstournament #chesscompetition #scholasticchess #governorscup #arizona #tempe #goodyear #carefree #scottsdale

This Saturday will be the last chance to qualify this semester! We will have two events one being at Mountainside Middle School and the other being at Verrado Heritage Elementary. Check our events to see more information on these tournaments. #chess #chessqualifier #chesstournament #chesscompetition #chessemporium #governorscup #scholasticchess #arizona #scottsdale #tempe #goodyear #carefree

We are down to just 2 more weekends left to qualify! There were about 250 kids that attempted to qualify this past Saturday. We will have a lot of exciting side events happening at the Governor's Cup and we can't wait to show you what we have planned. #chess #chessemporium #scholasticchess #chesstournament #governorscup #chessqualifier #arizona #scottsdale #tempe #goodyear #carefree

Our summer chess camp schedule is up! Take a look at the days we have available. Camps are a fun chance for the kids to learn and play chess. We offer them across all 4 centers. #chess #chessemporium #chesscamp #scholasticchess #arizona #tempe #scottsdale #goodyear #carefree

Can't quite make Saturdays work? Come down for our Friday tournaments or round robins held at our academies every week! We have a special for both events where you can get 4 entries for the price of 3! #chess #chessemporium #scholasticchess #chesstournament #arizona #scottsdale #tempe #carefree #goodyear #chesstrophy

Another 2 qualifiers are done and we are down to just 4 more weeks left. We highly recommend trying a qualifier earlier rather then later. You don't want to leave it down to the last qualifier. Students could easily take a couple attempts to get enough points to qualify. This Saturday we will be at Shea Middle School and Jacobson Elementary School! #chess #chessemporium #chesstournament #governorscup #arizona #tempe #carefree #goodyear #scottsdale

Congratulations to Fabiano Caruana!! After 3 weeks of fighting chess against some of the worlds toughest competition Caruana has emerged victorious. It has been over a decade since we had an American playing for the World Champion title. In 1996 we had Gata Kamsky play in the FIDE World Championship match but before that no Americans had played since Bobby Fischer won in 1972. Caruana's match against Magnus Carlsen will be in London, England from November 9th to November 28th later this year. #chess #chessemporium #arizona #scottsdale #tempe #goodyear #carefree #fabianocaruana
