Summer Chess Club

Monday, July 1 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Do you love chess and want to meet other players? Are you in grades 2 through 6?

Chess club offers a chance for kids in grades 2-6 to play chess in an informal, fun and relaxed atmosphere!  Players will rotate partners throughout the evening, providing a great opportunity to meet other chess players and learn from one another.  Chess helps kids develop problem-solving skills, patience and resilience, builds confidence and stimulates creativity and strategic thinking.

*Participants must sign up each date separately.  Players are expected to know the basics of chess, including how the pieces move, how castling works, and checkmate.*
