Chalker Wildcat Chess Team started in the fall of 2021. Chess helps students develop their strategic thinking, logical reasoning, situational awareness, analysis, and sportsmanship skills. Chess team is currently open to boys and girls in grades 9-12. A middle school meeting is being planned to begin during this school year. Last year, Chess team members took part in the first interscholastic scrimmage against Newton Falls in the spring of 2022. During the 2022-23 school year, the team is expected to play officially sanctioned matches against Newton Fall, Liberty, and Badger. The boys and girls of the chess team look forward to bringing the county chess trophy back to Chalker High School!
