Fairfax County Chess

Silver Knights has been teaching chess in Fairfax County since 2008. Over that time period we've taught more than 30,000 students in after school clubs, before school clubs, and camps. They include kids who've seventeen state championships and four national championships, but most of our students are beginners looking to learn a fun new game. That's how all the champions start out too!

We've run programs at most of the elementary schools in the county (you can see the list below), including schools in Alexandria, Annandale, Centreville, Chantilly, Fairfax, Falls Church, Herndon, Oakton, Reston, and Vienna.  We also run a ton of camps every summer and classes during the year with Fairfax County Parks and Rec (in Parktakes), McLean Community Center, Vienna Parks and Rec, and Falls Church City Parks and Rec. To set up a program at your school this fall, you can go here.  We know all the logistical ins-and-outs of working with public schools, private schools, and catholic schools that are part of the Arlington Archdiocese, and make things really easy for the schools, PTAs, and PTOs we work with.

We're planning to be back with tournaments this year - join our email list to stay in the loop!
