Chess Club

     The St. Louise Chess Club allows students to learn and improve their chess abilities through instruction, gameplay, and competition. While students will be encouraged to play in some tournaments for the overall experience, the St. Louise Chess Club is primarily a recreational club. Following each lesson, we will have a weekly tournament round for practice!
     If your child has never played or is a master, come join us for the joy of the game! During each weekly chess lesson, we will focus on learning popular checkmate patterns and valuable chess tactics. Players will learn how to strategically plan on the board with the goal of growing confident in decision-making and critical thinking.


Registrations at:

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, please contact the Chess Club Managers. No experience is necessary but needs to meet volunteer requirements.
What is
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 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.
