Voss Chess Club 2020-2021
TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19
Chess club is an after school activity that meets every other week. It is open to all grades and is designed to give students an opportunity to learn the game of chess, improve their chess skills, and to enjoy competition against their peers. Beginners will be taught the basic rules, the value of pieces, and how to checkmate their opponents. Experienced players will learn different opening and defense strategies, various tactics, and will challenge themselves by solving chess puzzles. While there will be friendly competition between members, the goal of the chess club is to build the following skills: self-esteem, critical thinking, concentration, social skills and good sportsmanship.
