In this video a young chess coach and his players talk about their approach to the game.
17-year-old Cameron Wendell is the coach of the Blue Hill Consolidated School chess team, which began last year in Blue Hill, Maine. Most of his students had never played competitive chess before joining the team. This year his team took first-place in the 2015 Maine State Junior High School Championship, and also first in the K-6 Novice Division Championship.
On April 26 they tied for 2nd place in the "K-8 Under 750" division at the National Chess Championship in Louisville, KY.
