Thank you for your involvement in the chess club.  We are looking forward to working with each student over the next several months.  The rules are simple and few for the club and are as follows:

  • Be on time
  • Respect others during the class
  • Students will be asked to join the USCF  (https://secure.uschess.org/webstore/member.php)   Scholastic Membership (Age 12 and Under)
  • Parents that stay during class may assist with coaching and playing if so desire but no hovering over your child
  • Students may be assigned homework during the season
  • All students will learn notation -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algebraic_notation_(chess)
  • If for any reason the student is disruptive and or problematic that student may be asked to discontinue attending (We will talk first)
  • Please be on time to pick up the students
