Chess Club

Please register for Chess Club using this online form. The Chess Club is sponsored by the Ligon PTA, led by enthusiastic parent volunteers, and is open to all Ligon students who know how to play chess. The club will meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday each month (excluding holidays and teacher workdays) from 2:30-4:00 pm throughout the school year. Club members learn new chess skills and practice them by playing chess on ChessKid.com.

The Club will collect an activity fee of $25 per student, which will provide each student with a 1-year US Chess membership and a 1-year ChessKid Gold subscription. Financial aid is available. 

The club will play as a team in local tournaments including the Triangle and NC Championships and will also organize our own US Chess-rated tournaments.
