There are chess beginners as well as Chess Masters who like to teach chess to others. Everyone learns by playing chess and having fun.
Students do not have to attend every meeting, but must play at least one match a week to stay in the Competition Ladder.
Each student has a win-loss-draw record and has a position on the Competition Ladder. Here's how it works:
- All new players are placed at the bottom of the ladder.
- If you beat a higher ranked opponent, you move up the ladder.
- If you lose to a lower ranked opponent, you move down the ladder.
Chess Club has periodic tournaments, with brackets based on Competition Ladder positions, NCAA style.
