Saint Joseph Grade School Chess Club
The SJGS Chess Club, an official affiliate of the U.S. Chess Federation (USCF), is open to students in grades 1-8, from beginners to expert players. Participants learn and practice strategies of chess in preparation for tournament play. After a hiatus of several years, the club reorganized in spring 2013 with much success - over 30 students participated!
The club holds two seasons per year, in the fall and winter, each including participation in a Scholastic Chess of Indiana tournament. Participants are encouraged to continue practicing at home or with friends out of season, and even participate in additional tournaments.
Winter 2015 Season
The Winter 2015 Season begins February 6 (registration ends February 5). The club will compete in the Indiana Scholastic Team Regional in Goshen on February 21. Please see the Winter 2015 Flyer for more details. Make checks payable to Saint Joseph Grade School and return to the school or parish office.
Fall 2014 Season
The Fall 2014 Season began October 10 and concluded with the Indiana State Scholastic Grade Level Championships in Fort Wayne on November 8. Eighteen SJGS students participated in the tournament held at Canterbury High School.
