The Ascension Chess Club is open to all students in grades 1 through 8. The club forms in the fall of each school year.
The chess club goal is to provide all levels of chess players, from beginners to advanced, the opportunity to play chess. Basic chess moves will be taught to the novices, recreational play to practice chess skills, and advanced strategy and tournament preparation for experience players. As the players become proficient, they participate in local and community tournaments.
The club usually meets monthly and a small fee is charged to cover dues and team t-shirt.
