Chess Club Manager, part of the Think Like A King School Chess Software System, lets you create all the information a chess club needs, and use it to transform an activity into a varsity sport. This remarkably easy-to-use software enables you to fully motivate students with features like club ratings and standings, bonus points and statistics.
Export player data, choose a rating system, create instant tournament registrations by print or e-mail. Export data to SwissSys or WinTD to run your own tournaments.
