Chess Club

The Bidwell Junior High School Chess Team is open to all Bidwell students, regardless of prior chess-playing experience. As a part of the Sacramento Valley Scholastic Chess League, we provide the opportunity for Bidwell students to play chess competitively as a part of our school team. Students, however, must be a member of the SVSCL and the United States Chess Federation in order to compete in tournaments. The team practices on Tuesdays at lunch in Room 401. Please see Ms. Sutton in Room 101 for more information or just swing by Room 401 at lunch to start playing!
