Our club is open to all junior high students interested in learning or playing tournament chess. Tournaments are usually held on Saturdays. Students who play in tournaments will earn a U.S. Chess Federation rating. Playing chess is like an exciting story, where the story unfolds, strategies are formed and changed, suspense grows, and then the final drama unfolds where one king has no place to hide but to concede unless a stalemate ensues. Your story is just a move away.
This club is open to all students who enjoy the competition, excitement, strategy, and fun of gaming. We will participate in a variety of games from card games to board games to digital games.
