About Us

Our Coaches

BKCL coaches, who are mostly BCPS teachers, volunteer to lead chess clubs at the schools, and the time commitment is enormous. In addition to hosting and attending after school club meetings, they also spend several weekends a year at all-day tournaments. Some travel away from their own families to accompany our students to chaperone state and national tournaments. 

It has been our coaches' ongoing commitment to their students and to the program that has allowed BKCL to achieve its mission. In their own drive to excellence, several of our coaches have even obtained US Chess Federation certification.  Each year we recognized our top coaches who year after year have made the commitment to excellence.
