Chess Club

The GSA Chess Club is an inclusive, relaxed environment for any student to have fun learning and playing chess.  The mental discipline of getting better at chess improves concentration, logical thinking, memory, spatial visualization, creativity, and sportsmanship.  

Membership is open to all students in grades 1 -8.  There are two groups: the Knights group is for grades 1-4 and the Bishops group is for grades 5-8.
