Little Geniuses is a chess-song singing, laughing, chess-tourney, dancing, chess clock-slapping, zany chess video, puppet show introduction to chess and being the smart kid in class. Children play chess for Mardi Gras beads, compete weekly for one of 20 brightly-colored silicone wristbands, and look forward each week to our 22 daily activities. Kids report Little Geniuses to be the favorite part of their week because kids love our developmentally-targeted, infectiously-fun thinking activities and find them compelling, exhilarating, and extremely gratifying.
Children learn basic soccer skills; character development; and coordination, balance and agility on the field. Students play fun games with an experienced coach and win fun prizes. This is ideal for students currently enrolled in soccer or wish to explore soccer further.
