Chess Club

The Raider Chess Club will meet after school in the library from 3:45 - 4:15 pm every other Tuesday throughout the year. The purpose of the club is to provide Raider chess enthusiasts the opportunity to play on a regular basis and to get to know others who are interested in the game. Some informal tournaments will take place throughout the year. Also, members of the SMU Chess Club and a USCF tournament coordinator/coach will join us for a few meetings to provide tips and strategies. The first club meeting will be Tuesday, September 27.


Members of the Raider Chess Club are expected to:

  • Arrive promptly for each meeting.

  • Treat others respectfully.

  • Exhibit appropriate, courteous behavior, a positive attitude, and good sportsmanship.

  • Help put away chess supplies before departing the club meeting.


This year, thanks to Mrs. Jessica Turner Waugh, we will serve light snacks at each meeting. Members are asked to contribute $10 cash to help cover the cost of these refreshments.
