It’s been an exciting year for Yellow Springs King’s as we wrapped up a successful year with 2 team trophies at the Queen City Classic in Cincinnati! Our 3rd grade team, Zenya Hoff-Miyazaki, Sumayah Chappelle and Kai Maryama came in 4th place. And our 4th grade team consisting of Tyreese Benning, David Walker, Sulayman Chappelle and Nathan Bales came in 2nd place overall. Wow!

Yellow Springs has a lot of talented and gifted children and I attribute a lot of our success in the Queen City Classic to year round training and playing Chess! Read More

Mr. Omar has been working with my son on a private basis for about two months. In that time, I have seen a great improvement in his game. In addition, my son has developed a deeper love and appreciation of chess. I attibute much of his progress to Mister Omar’s dedication and enthusiasm. ~Ellen in Yellow Springs
