The St. Brendan Chess Team is open to all interested students grades K-8.   The Chess team meets all Mondays when school is in session, from October to last week of April with occasional Saturday tournament days (encouraged but not required).


The full team (all new and returning players) are invited to the first full team practice on Monday October 14 from 3:00-4:15pm in the 1st grade room.   Due to space limitations, the chess team will be using a variety of spaces week-to-week depending on various other group schedules.  We will likely break out into: the gym, 1st grade, 4th grade, 5th grade room.   However, please plan on meeting your students for pick up at 4:15 in the hallway outside of 5th grade & 1st grade.


Parent volunteers (even if you don’t know anything about chess) are needed to help the Chess team run smoothly.  If you need more information or are interested in helping with the Chess Team, please contact Ellen Reed at
