Chess, the world’s premier intellectual sport, is played by millions daily. Its origins, though mysterious, are renowned for enhancing cognitive functions like attention, focus, concentration, memory, creativity, and visualization. Moreover, chess fosters valuable character traits such as perseverance, sportsmanship, respect, and resilience in the face of failure.
To fully harness these benefits, structured learning and competitive opportunities are essential. SCA has organized chess tournaments in Shanghai since 2015, including the inaugural International Schools Online Chess League. We are thrilled to introduce the 2023-2024 International Schools Online League and invite teams from all global international schools to join the competition.
