Sacred Heart School Chess Club
Welcome to the Sacred Heart chess club page!
Chess is a valuable skill that can boost confidence as well as focus, analytical thinking and problem solving skills. We strive to encourage good sportsmanship and courtesy as well.
There will be two 12 week sessions of chess club (see dates below). Club will be on Tuesdays from 2:30pm to 3:30pm for both sessions. Chess Club does not meet when school is not in session or dismisses early. Fruit snacks will be provided for each student at every club.

Open to 3rd-8th grade
Students must have a basic understanding how to play chess. Students will learn tactics, openings, pawn structure, and common endgames while reinforcing and expanding on their basic chess knowledge. Students will also develop transferable life skills such as self-discipline, concentration, long term planning, and the ability to learn from their mistakes.
