Meets: most Thursdays from 3:00-3:45, only when Track 3 is in (beginning around September or October)
The chess club will meet on Thursdays only when Track 3 is in. Meetings will be after school. The purpose of the Chess Club is to teach the students how to play chess with other students at the school. Students will be taught the rules of the game, openings, algebraic notation, checkmates, tactics, draws, and pawn structure. There will be both informal games and timed games. Although not required, students are invited to attend local chess tournaments. Good sportsmanship, teamwork and relating chess to traditional academic subjects are additional benefits of joining the chess club.
