Everyone is welcome, regardless of whether one knows how to play. Chess Club brings chess playing opportunities to the school in a friendly and educational setting. Studies show that chess improves math, reading and problem solving.

In addition to friendly play, the club encourages competitive play for players interested in attending local competitions and the regional tournament where DHMS will compete against other schools. Head Coach and National Chess Master Damir Studen will provide instruction as well as time for games during each class.
