Chess Team

ABOUT

The AMHS Chess team provides students with the opportunity to develop strategy and tactics as well as build friendships. Select students will have the opportunity to represent AMHS by competing at the JV and Varsity levels in the WESCO Chess league.

The five top-rated players compete on the Varsity Chess Team. Other ranked players have the opportunity to compete individually at the JV level. The WESCO Chess season runs from mid-November until the end of February followed by the WA State tournament for qualifying teams.

The team meets during select community periods and Tuesdays after school for practice, coaching, and administrative announcements. Home and away games for competitive players are held on Thursdays throughout the season.

Players of all grades and skill levels are invited to join us for meetings and game play or to try out for the JV or varsity teams. Protect the Bishop!
