St. Louise School Chess Club

If your child has never played or is a master, come for the joy of the game.


The St. Louise Chess Club is run in order to allow students to learn and improve their chess abilities through instruction, gameplay, and competition in a fun, respectful, and encouraging environment.  While students will be encouraged to play in some tournaments for the overall experience, the St. Louise Chess Club is primarily a recreational club. 
The St. Louise Chess Club is managed by Oscar Antezana and Karen Garivizu.  If you have any questions, please contact us via [email protected].
For any further questions, please contact Maria Zambrano, Extracurricular Activities Director at [email protected]

General reminders:
  • Students are required to check-in at the entry of Chess Club in the St. Louise Room with one of the parent volunteers.
  • Parents need to sign-out students in the attendance list. An adult needs to sign-out students as we will not release students to other students, school level siblings, or themselves. If you have questions or want to request a unique release process, please contact Chess Club Manager at [email protected].
  • Pick up time is 3:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. in St. Louise Room, after this time we will direct students to Kids Club, which may involve a fee.
  • We need parent volunteers if you are interested, contact Chess Club Manager. No experience is necessary but needs to meet volunteer requirements.
Thank you.

What is ChessKid.com?

It is a safe site for kids to learn and play chess:

  • Safe: No contacts with strangers and parents can manage access and friendship.
  • Learn & Improve: Hundreds of videos, thousands of puzzles and interactive lessons to further improve chess skills.
  • Play & have fun: Safe play against the computer or online opponents around the globe.


What is the Gold membership?

With a Gold membership kids can access all content from ChessKid.com and play as many puzzles and games as they want. A yearly subscription is $49 but we will provide it to Chess Club members as a new benefit.


Why are we including this benefit?

Chess is a game that requires practice and this will allow our students to keep learning chess beyond our class. Also, we will help to setup a personalized lesson plan for kids to continue in their own.
