Developing chess in the Rio Grande Valley Community is one of the UTB Chess Program priorities.
Recently, the UTB Chess Coach Bartek Macieja, assisted by Luciana Morales and Mkhitar Hobosyan, UTB Chess Team members, introduced chess to kids at the PSJA district (Pharr, San Juan, Alamo). Two sessions took place in the San Juan Middle School, 1229 S. Veterans Blvd., in June 10-14 and 17-21.
The camps were more than successful with over 400 kids showing up, learning basics and playing their first own game of chess.
The cooperation will the PSJA district will be continued in the future.
