Chess Club Returns

Chess Returns to Fabius-Pompey

Chess has been exploding in the Middle School-High School Library and we have chess games going on nearly every period of the school day!  Fabius-Pompey is well known for excellent players and in the past they have earned trophies at the national level! Fabius Pompey has a long tradition of chess and we are excited to inspire a new generation of chess players.

Chess teaches “systems thinking”. Systems thinking is simply the art of seeing "the big picture.” It's a problem-solving approach that views the pieces as being connected to a greater whole. Chess encourages focus learning and playing chess teaches children the benefits of careful observation and concentration.  

Miss Turner, MS-HS Librarian and Coach May have collaborated to start a Chess Club due to all the interest from students.  We have beginners to advanced players - all are welcome to play from 6th grade to 12th grade and beyond.  Nearly twenty students are taking part on Wednesdays after-school to learn about chess and become better players!  Bob Nasiff, from Syracuse Chess, a grand-master has joined us as a coach to improve the player's skills.  We hope to begin attending competitions very soon.  guest speaker talking to students about chess strategies
