About the STAR Chess Club
The STAR Chess Club is an exciting opportunity for students to be introduced to a community of chess players outside of school. The club meets once a month to play games, hear lectures by high level chess players, form a new STAR Chess Team, and engage in all around chess fun! The club is for all players whether you play chess just for fun or are a competitive player. Plus, through the lectures the students will be able to meet and learn from high level chess players. Master level sightings at the club have been: Alfred Balain, NM Brendan Purcell, International Master Zhanibek Amanov Grandmaster Melik Khachiyan & Women’s Grandmaster Tatev Abrahamyan.
The STAR Chess club is also a great place for parents to engage in their child’s chess education. We encourage all parents to play games with their child at the club, engage in the various activities, and stay for all of the lectures. The STAR Chess club also has a special monthly class for parents who do not know how to play chess taught by our resident chess guru Jonney Machtig.
