The Spicewood Elementary Chess Club is a volunteer group run by parents to promote increased knowledge and understanding of the game of chess as an art as well as an intellectual sport. We are not sponsored by PTA. We are a school sponsored club that gets all of our funding from the one-time registration fee paid at the beginning of the school year. Through our library of instructional books, videos, and chess publications and special seminars with chess champions and trainers, the Spicewood Elementary Chess Club seeks to foster the development of its Members as chess players and enhance their appreciation of "The Royal Game". The Chess Club is open to all Spicewood Elementary students K-5, with a special section for Kindergartners.
No previous knowledge of chess is necessary to join - All levels welcome!
The Chess Club meets every Friday morning between 6:30AM and 7:30AM in the school library.
In the recent years, our chess club has enjoyed a large membership with over 150 students enrolled each year. We have many members that train and participate in local, state and national chess tournaments. We strive to work closely with the neighboring scholastic chess clubs including Laurel Mountain Elementary school and Canyon Vista Middle school to foster goodwill as well as help assemble a chess powerhouse for the central Texas region.
