Collins Kids organization

Collins Kids organization

The Collins Kids were a group of young chess players invited by John W. Collins to play chess against teams from other countries. The international link began at the 1972 World Chess Championship in Reykjavík, Iceland between Bobby Fischer (USA) and Boris Spassky (USSR). John Collins was a life-long teacher and friend of Fischer. The Collins Kids would often field teams of young players at the United States Annual Team Championship in Parsippany, NJ.

Howard Kipp Parker has served as a director of the Collins Kids since 1986.
