You Can’t Stop the Mighty St. Anne Chess Club
Our Chess Club is heading into its tenth year and it is stronger than ever! Starting on November 1, 2021 beginners will meet virtually every Monday from 5:30-6pm. Intermediate/advanced students will meet virtually from 6:30-7pm. All students are invited to practice their chess skills and play chess games with peers in ChessKid tournaments from 6-6:30pm. The St Anne School Chess Club will run through the end of March 2022.
Coach Josh Sinanan, National Chess Master and President of the Washington Chess Federation will teach St. Anne Chess Club classes and run our weekly ChessKid tournaments.
We will hold two virtual state qualifier scholastic (K-8) chess tournaments, the first is December 12, 2021 and the second is in late March/April (dates are yet to be finalized.) These tournaments attract 100+ scholastic chess players from all over the Puget Sound and there are lots of prizes up for grabs! The proceeds from these tournaments has enabled St. Anne’s Chess Club to replace and upgrade all of our equipment, purchase ChessKid memberships for club students and bring in Josh Sinanan to coach our club classes. Some kids love the tournaments and others just prefer to play casual chess. All participation levels are encouraged!
Please contact Kelly Jaeger at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating.
