Chess Club


CHESS CLUB SIGN UP IS CLOSED
PLEASE CONTACT CHESS CLUB DIRECTOR WITH QUESTIONS

The Riverfield Chess Club is open to students in 1st through 5th grades. We hope to see all our familiar faces from last year, as well as many new ones! Here are some basics and key points for this coming year:

What is chess? Chess is a time-honored game (dating back 1,500 years!) that teaches kids critical thinking, strategy, competition, and sportsmanship – skills they can use throughout their lives. Once learned, it becomes a lifelong love, something they can play anywhere, anytime, with anyone, at any age.

What is Chess Club? Entering our 23nd year, we are an extra-curricular club activity at Riverfield, overseen by parent volunteers, offering instruction and game play in a fun and safe environment for our kids. Our main goals are developing critical thinking skills, building confidence and self-esteem, experiencing competition and sportsmanship, and having fun!

Who can join? Chess Club is open to girls and boys, in grades 1 through 5, at any skill level, from “I have no idea what chess is” to children wanting to compete in external state tournaments. We offer something for everyone.

Please contact Wes Arnett, Parent Leader, at chessclub@riverfieldschoolpta.com with any questions.
