Whether you are a chess pro or would like to learn how to play, all skill levels are welcome! We are a group of chess enthusiasts who get together to play chess, help each other improve, and just have fun! Members also have the opportunity to attend two Saturday tournaments, where they will get to compete with other players from dozens of local high schools.
The top 8 players form the FHS Chess Team, which over the course of our season competes in:
1. Ten MSL meets
2. MSL Team Tournament
3. IHSA Sectional Tournament
4. IHSA State Competition in Peoria
During the 2017-2018 school year we finished 8th place in the state (out of 128 teams), which is the highest finish in the history of FHS - we hope that you'll join us this year as we try to improve upon this record!
