Winter Chess Club // Intermediate Community


Fall Chess Fee - Intermediate who do not attend OSOTA.

Winter Semester: January 9th - February 27th (payment due by December 19th)


The Intermediate chess club is structured for students who are already comfortable with the rules of the game and have a desire to further develop their chess skills. Students will focus on learning and applying tactical patterns and basic opening principles to their games. They will also play chess with their peers in a structured environment (aside from learning, playing time is a crucial aspect of improvement in chess). 

All Intermediate students are encouraged to compete in our monthly scholastic chess tournaments to gain competitive experience. 

For more information, please contact Mr. Sibbitt at
