Chess Team: Tuesdays 3:00 to 4:45
Now entering its third year under the leadership of Coach Joe Veal, our team is among the most successful elementary teams in the state. Team kids participate in tournaments and must satisfy weekly homework requirements.

Chess Club: Tuesdays 3:00 to 4:00
Kids who enjoy playing chess but don’t wish to participate in tournaments or do homework may apply to our afterschool chess club. Students must demonstrate mastery of basic chess skills prior to their first meeting.

Required basics are listed below. Click each link for a fun instructional video from Chesskid.com.
