Periodically, some of the students participate in inter-facility chess tournaments. The visiting facility arranges security and transportation for a team of young competitors selected by their classroom teachers. In addition to showing interest and proficiency in chess, eligible students must have shown interest in their general classes and not received any disciplinary actions.
The most recent event was hosted by Pompano Youth Treatment Center. Visitors included the Mayor of Pompano Beach, Rex Hardin, the Mayor of Sunrise, Michael Ryan, and the NSCF’s Executive Director Sunil Weeramantry.
