Chess Club

Missouri Valley Chess Club seeks to provide high school and middle school students the opportunity to be involved in a year-round extracurricular activity that focuses on building a community around the game of chess. 
 
Learning:
From the basics of properly setting up a chess board and simple piece movement rules to learning and applying opening, midgame, and endgame theory, we strive to help every level of chess player grow.
 
Competition:
Not only do we regularly compete against each other, but we look for various ways to engage with the greater chess community. We hope to partner up with neighboring schools clubs for a scrimmage or tournament.
 
Community Outreach:
Currently we hold semesterly game nights where students can get together, have fun, and play different board games. In the future we would like to set up chess sessions at various senior living facilities or a chess camp at the elementary.
 
The MV Chess Club meets every Monday and Thursday, from 3:30pm to 4:30pm in the high school media center.
