Northeastern Arizona Homeschoolers Chess & Checkers Club
Northeastern Arizona Homeschoolers meet 1 to 2 times per month for our Chess & Checkers Club. Families are invited to bring their own chess and/or checker boards for play, or coordinate with other players. Students grades K-12 are welcome to play. We also encourage older siblings and parents to participate as mentors in helping with game play, rules, strategy, etc.
We have a final "Chess & Checkers Club" of the year, where we host a Chess Tournament with Chess Medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.
