    • Learning a new game.
    • Increasing students strategizing and problem-solving techniques as they relate to Chess.
    • Learning how to plan and think ahead.
    • Meeting new, like-minded students and players.
    • Having fun and competing against others.
    • Learning sportsmanship.
    • Providing opportunities for students to gain a deeper understanding of the game by teaching it to others.

    The Club Advisor is Mr. Frederick. The club will meet throughout the school year at various dates and times.
