Chess Club

"Playing chess prepares you for life! It teaches you how to make plans and execute them, how to track your work and make adjustments when things do not go as planned."

The St. Joseph’s Knights Chess Club begins October in the Parish Hall. It is open to all students in grades 1-8. Mr. Joe Sommers is the chess coach for St. Joseph’s. The two priorities for this year are CHESS NOTATION, to allow players to record and learn from their games, and increased participation at tournaments, which give monthly opportunities to spend a Saturday testing and honing your skills against students from other schools.

We have taken team trophies in the K-3 division for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place, as well as many individual honors.
