NOT TEAM RESULT BUT INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOR ME. My mission is for every child, to have the skills that allow them to play anywhere.
NOT ACHIEVING THE GOAL BUT STRIVING FOR IT IS A GREATER VALUE. I set specific goals for each of my players. I know that these goals are not always achieved, but during the training and practice process, the child gets to know and learns many valuable skills, that will pay off in the future.
Each child, depending on age, sex, physical conditions, motor skills etc. gets the opportunity and chance to develop and improve their skills.
Especially at the beginning of the adventure, I try to conduct classes on the principle of games and playing with elements of basketball and soccer, so that the child develops and trains with a smile on his/her face.
The second stage in the process is to make children aware that training is not only fun and laugh, but also systematic hard work. I try to convey to all participants, that in every area of life there is time for fun and time for commitment.

All children are invited to chess classes led by a licensed instructor of the Polish Chess Federation. Chess develops the ability to think logically, concentrate, anticipate, spatial imagination and memory. It teaches mental toughness, coping with failure and self-control. It shapes positive character traits such as ambition, tolerance or action and decision-making in stressful situations. All students of the "Skoczek" Chess Centre can compete in weekly online chess tournaments on the lichess.org platform throughout the school year, but we also encourage live starts and participation in our chess day camps.
