Chess Club

 

The Tega Cay TITANS Chess Club serves as a place where 3rd-5th grade students with various skill levels can congregate and enjoy the royal game of chess.

 

Our club is based on the learning and understanding the basics of the game and developing deeper insight into forward thinking.

 

The Chess club will have signup on Aug 25th from 5-6 PM in the library of TCES.  Our first meeting will be to sign up and go over the club rules and structure.  Coach Kevin Crosby will meet with the students and get an understanding of the skill set each has on the game.
