The Chess Club is open to interested students in grades 3 – 6 and is available to all levels of players. Students meet once a week during their lunch period. The Chess Club provides an opportunity for beginners to learn the basic rules of the game, and for experienced players to improve their strategies.
Chess is a sport for the mind! It helps to develop memory, logical thinking, and improves concentration. Students will learn to think ahead, weigh options, and accept consequences. As with all sports played at St. Michael, an emphasis is put on good sportsmanship.
