Chess Team

General Information

Who: Everyone is welcome - whether you have played for years or are simply interested in learning how to play. The Chess Team is open to any 6th, 7th or 8th grader interested in playing chess.

What: During Chess Team, we play chess! Players should be ready and willing to accept a challenge from any player. Players are expected to demonstrate good sportsmanship and a willingness to help others become better players. Unless other arrangements are made with the Chess Team coach, players should stay for the entire practice.

When: Sign up through MyPaymentsPlus during February and March.  Chess Team starts Tuesday, March 2nd for Cohort B and Thursday, March 4th for Cohort A.  We will meet at 3:15 in the Cafeteria, and our end time is 4:45.  This year’s Chess Team season will run one day a week for each Cohort until Thursday, April 29.   Students can either get picked up by a parent after practice (no later than 4:45 p.m.) or take the activity bus home.  Parents must sign students up for the activity bus.
