Chess Club

JAMS will have a chess team again this year that will compete in the West Virginia Scholastic Chess League.  Our teams won 3rd  and 4th place last year.

The first practice will be Monday, October 2 after school in Mr. Brown’s room.  Subsequent practices will be each Monday after school through late March, except Tuesday, October 17, January 2, and January 16 when there is no school in session on Mondays.   Practices  last until 4:30 P.M. when a parent needs to pick up their child.

Beginners are welcome to come to practices to learn and practice, and there are no fees until they choose to play in a tournament.  Practices are not mandatory to be on the team, but they do help improve the game, so come when you can.
