The Waller Chess Team is available to all Waller Junior High Students who are passing their classes and wish to participate. The game of chess is a centuries old game used to teach strategy and concepts to young and old alike.
“Chess is an awesome game! Students love it…just this year, we grew to over 100 student members in our chess club which means 2% of our district students are playing! And this is only the beginning…chess is catching on like wildfire in our district. We have had fund raisers that resulted in chess club members owning their own chess sets…we’ve brought students to Houston chess tournaments, and we’ve also hosted our own chess tournaments. Playing chess is a GREAT example of students learning so much while having a BLAST playing a game! Come join the fun!” - Mike Brooks.
Students do not need to worry about membership dues or lack of knowledge about the game; anything you need to be taught the coaches can teach.
Every year the Chess Team holds a fall and spring fundraiser to raise money for equipment and tournaments. Feel free to donate any funds to the Tax office.
