“The Game of Chess is not merely an idle amusement; several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired and strengthened by it…”  Ben Franklin, 1776

NBMS Chess 2016-2017

            The Chess Club at NBMS is open to all 68th thru 86th grade students. There are no tryout requirements and all skill levels are welcome. The culminating event for the club will be the Onslow County Schools Chess Tournament that will be held in April of 2017. Our ten student school team will be determined based on the results of our intra-school tournament that will be held in March. Club participants are not required to compete for a tournament slot.

            Perfect attendance is not required to remain active in the club. I am aware that some students are active in a number of extracurricular activities. It is however, important to keep club staff informed of your status. Attendance will be required for the four to six day period of the NBMS tournament in March. Any student that fails to show without reason for his/her match will forfeit that match. Keeping me informed of conflicts will enable me to reschedule matches and prevent confusion.

            All club participants are expected to adhere to the academic and behavioral guidelines for New Bridge Middle School extracurricular participation. Should any student have grade issues, then he or she will be ineligible to participate until their grade problems are resolved. Receipt of OSS or ISS will result in disqualification from tournament participation.
