A Teacher's Indispensable Tool

"You'll love what this does for your chess club!"
- Frank Niro, Past Executive Director, U.S. Chess Federation

“I love your program!!!  … You make my job so much easier that I am dancing… My assistant coach was ecstatic.  He loves the way you can pull all the scores and we get stats on the kids… Let me tell you he is hard to please.  So you won him over."
–  Lillian Zoller, Dayton, Ohio


Chess Club Manager© (CCM) makes it easier than ever for teachers to use chess as a powerful educational tool.  It’s like having our own assistant coach on duty 24 hours a day.

Chess Club Manager lets you create all the information a chess club needs, then use it to transform an activity into a varsity sport.  This remarkably easy-to-use software enables you to fully motivate students with features like club ratings, bonus points and statistics.  It prints award certificates for everything from playing skills to puzzle solving to effort to sportsmanship – or any other category you create.

It even lets you automatically reward learning via progress through our Thinking Belt system.  So whether through performance or participation, everyone in your chess program becomes a winner.  And all your kids are inspired to do their best.
