We Proudly Support the USA Youth Chess Team

We strongly believe that playing chess supports the development of significant analytical skills.

Chess is similar to a protracted math problem. Much like math, it is based on logic and requires critical and creative thinking.

This fall, we were proud to support the up-and-coming generation of accomplished chess enthusiasts as a sponsor of the United States team at the World Youth Chess Championship. The roster of US Chess’ strongest young players wore custom uniforms designed by Two Sigma that spoke to the team first approach that carried them to the final rounds.
