Leaders After School at PS 32Q Afterschool Program
171-11 35th Ave, Flushing, NY 11358


NYCA is ecstatic to be able to announce a partnership with Leaders After School and bring chess to the students at PS 32Q ! They are an excellent non-profit organization which aims to create life-long experiences for kids by fostering a community for students, parents, and teachers alike.

  • For beginner levels: The students will learn the basics of chess and build a solid foundation needed to move ahead - from the movements and values of the pieces, to tactics and different checkmate patterns.

  • For intermediate levels: The students will have a better understanding of the patterns, tactics, and principles in the opening, middle game, and end game.

  • For advanced levels: The students will focus on the strategizing, thinking process, and have a deep understanding of different openings and endgame techniques. 

* Please fill out the form at checkout to indicate the level. The participants will be grouped and divided based on their levels (the coaches will also do an assessment to ensure the participants are in their appropriate group) and whenever the kids are ready to be "promoted", we will automatically move them up to the next level.
