    Our goal is to make chess easily accessible for all girls interested in learning. There is no cost for taking classes at FEMchess. All FEMchess officers and coaches are volunteers.

    We accept girls from age 5-17.

    Classes will be taught using tools like Lichess,, and just to name a few. Info on our coaches who will be teaching the students can be found on the general coaches tab as well as our head coaches who can be found under the "About" tab.
  • How much experience do you have to have in playing chess to register?
    Anyone with any amount of experience can join. This includes children who have zero experience with chess as well as children who are already well versed in chess and have played competitively for a long time.
