CCA Chess Club

The Chess Club at Cesar Chavez Academy was founded to provide an environment to learn the fundamentals of chess and therefore the strict rules of play will not be enforced.  Players are encouraged to advise their opponent of their game strategy, and also the intent of specific moves.

      CCA-Chess Club game play guidelines:

o   Have fun

o   Be respectful of each other

o   Stay focused

o   Players with more experience and understanding of chess are expected to help opponents with lesser experience

o   Stay focused

o   Placing the King in Checkmate ends the game but is not cause for celebration

o   Stay focused

o   Coaches are to encourage players to identify moves and not directly advise what move is best

o   Stay focused

o   HAVE FUN! 

Chess is exercise for the brain that gives relief from other trying activities while providing a lifetime of entertainment.
