    It’s hard to overstate how well run Elite Chess is. From the tournaments they run, to the way they approach instruction tailored to the age group (play, mini lesson, play, revisit lesson, short exit ticket quiz), to outings with the kids, and the communication (including use of the website). It’s a passion project for the person who runs it and he prioritizes sportsmanship and kids loving chess. If you’re someone who wants a hardcore instructor and competitive atmosphere this isn’t likely your place but if you, like me, have a kid who enjoys chess, wants to get better, and wants to enjoy doing so, this place is the best.

    I can't thank Elite Chess enough for the incredible journey our family has had over the past four years. When we moved to Naperville amidst the challenges of Covid, little did we know that discovering Elite Chess would become a turning point for our son. Our chess adventure began online, seamlessly transitioning to onsite sessions as things improved. The teaching team at Elite Chess is nothing short of amazing. Their ability to ignite creative thinking and encourage collaboration among the kids is truly impressive. Watching our children work together, pushing boundaries and inspiring each other, has been a joy to witness. The leader of this program is Coach Jeff DiOrio. His unwavering support has been a lifeline for our son who battles anxiety. Coach Jeff's unique approach and innovative ideas have enabled our child to engage in chess while managing his anxiety. His patience and genuine care have made a world of difference, and we're endlessly grateful. Our son's connection with the entire staff and other children at Elite Chess is heartwarming. As we embark on our fourth year with Elite Chess, we reflect on how this journey has not just been about chess, but about fostering growth, confidence, and camaraderie. Thank you, Elite Chess, for being more than a chess academy. You're a family that nurtures young minds and spirits. Here's to many more years of learning, growth, and success together!

    This great place for chess. They have some good chess camps and classes for kids round the year and kids love it. Their summer camps are lot of fun for kids.
