Chess Club

The goal of a chess club is to introduce students to a game that is more than just a game.  Besides being fun to learn and play, chess is about strategy and critical thinking.  It is a game that challenges students to think about their actions and—ultimately—the consequences of those actions.  It fosters critical thinking and problem solving skills and can improve concentration and mental discipline which can benefit our students not just on the chessboard but in all of their academics—and even athletics—as well.
