Chess Club

Chess ClubChess Club is for kids who would like to learn chess or improve their skills. Players are grouped by ability, not age, in the club.


Chess Club meets on Thursday afternoons in the CRS cafeteria from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. Two sessions of Chess Club are offered each year - from September to January and from February to May. Chess Club is delivered through our partnership with the U.S. Chess Center, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.  All instructors are nationally certified chess coaches.


Participants must be in grades 2 to 6.
