“My daughter was earlier afraid of losing chess games. She started attending SVCC’s classes. Now she has started to gain confidence and now she is not afraid of losing. Coach Venkat's constant inspiration has made her understand that every game is a new beginning. Chess can be taught by anyone, but Silicon Valley Chess Club is inspiring kids. Thank you so much!”

Not only the chess skills, but I can also see an overall improvement in his focus and confidence due to the courses and tournaments.
