Play Chess!

There is a way that we can continue the Chess Club and give elementary students a chance to be part of it!  Take a look at www.chess.com, or click on the link to the left "Play Chess!"  You can sign up for the website to play live competition, join tournaments, and register for classes, or you can just hone your skills by playing as a guest against the computer.  You can learn as you play… the computer allows you to take back moves!  There are also online tutorials and puzzles for training your mind that are available to guests, so it isn’t necessary to join the site to enjoy the advantages of developing new strategies and becoming a better chess player!  Obviously there is more available to those who register for the site, but it’ll make you a better chess player whether you do, or you don’t. 

This invitation is open to all Bellmawr students!  This website already has millions of members… come join the fun!
