Chess Club

Hi, I am Miss Braley and I want to welcome students to Hargrave High School Chess Club!  Our purpose is to enjoy playing the game with others, improve game strategy, and teach others who have an interest in chess.  Whether you are an advanced player or just beginning, Hargrave High School Chess Club is happy to have you join. Chess is an educational tool aiding in the learning of planning, cause and effect relationships, pattern recognition, and research, all key skills for success in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) as per the USCF. Chess is a historic and iconic game, and we celebrate its history, growth and evolution in our activities and services. The USCF (United States Chess Federation) rules and regulations will be followed at all times. Good sportsmanship and manners are expected at all times. Meetings are held Thursday afternoons in Room B223, from 3-4 p.m. Please bring a chess set with you if possible. Dues to be announced at a later date. See you soon!

Hello!  I am excited to be the Hargrave High School Chess Sponsor this year. I have taught social studies since 2002 and played chess for many years, and even though I live in "Longhorn" country, I love being a Falcon!  As a Falcon, I have sponsored Chess Club at Huffman Middle School for the past five years, and coached Chess & Social Studies UIL as part of academic competition.  Even though this is my first year at Hargrave HS, it is great to have past students in Chess Club again, but anyone is welcome who has an interest in one of the oldest games in the world.  My goal is to make HHS Chess Club into an organization that is second to none, and provide a place for all Falcons to "nest" and enjoy spending time with others who share the same love for the game.
