Chess Team

The Imani Chess Team is one of the top three Elementary School chess teams in the city of Houston.  With their hard work ethic and dedication to the game, they have earned the respect and admiration of the entire Houston Scholastic Chess community.  With the guidance of their coach and instructor Gerardo Romero, they have learned not only to win, but to also build character through adversity, to love the game of chess, to make new friends, and to have fun doing all of those things. Children who play competitive chess experience significant improvement in their memory, abstract thinking, problem solving skills, organizational and math skills, and their focus and concentration. In a team setting, they learn the concept of working together in order to achieve their goals. The Imani Golden Knights Chess Team has won four team championships, seven second place team trophies, and eleven third place team trophies. It has produced nine individual chess champions, forty multiple trophy winners, and over 120 total individual trophies won by 50 different Imani chess students. All of our accolades are for the glory of God!
