The chess club offers students the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of chess. It welcomes students of all ability levels, from novices interested in casual games to veterans interested in competitive play. From October through January, the St. X chess team participates in the Jefferson County Chess League and its end-of-season tournament. Additionally, students may compete in the Quad B sectional qualifier and, possibly, the state team and individual tournaments, as well.
The chess club commences in mid-September and meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 3:00 until 4:00 pm, in room 234. Matches sometimes take the place of Thursday practices. Following the conclusion of the league play in January, meetings are held on Tuesdays only.
