Chess Club is open to all Dixon High School students, regardless of skill level. Whether you are a skilled player who wants to sharpen your skills and test them at competitions, or you just enjoy playing the game and do not wish to compete, or you are a beginner who wants to learn how to play the game, we welcome you.
Playing chess helps to develop many mental skills that are useful in life, such as: logic, strategic and tactical thinking, planning and preparation, and problem-solving. Chess Club provides an opportunity to simply have fun playing the game and making friendships, while building these skills at the same time.
The Chess Club participates in the County Tournament in the Spring.
