Have you ever wanted to learn how to play Chess?  Do you already play chess and need to practice?  Are you looking for some new opponents to challenge you?

Don’t know how to play chess, no problem!  No experience is necessary!  Beginners will learn the name of the pieces and how to move.  Chess Club will teach children strategies to learn to plan ahead, to value their material and to distinguish good ideas from bad ones. They learn to see things from more than one point of view.

Chess teaches responsibility, discipline, and critical thinking and problem-solving skills.  Chess players learn how to make the most of their opportunities and how to turn a bad situation to their advantage.  They learn not to make excuses for their set-backs, and to win and lose graciously.
