The Seattle Prep chess team is open to anyone with an interest in the game, regardless of ability or experience. The program provides students an opportunity to hone their chess skills, represent Prep against other teams from across the state, and have fun doing so.
The team practices after school beginning in October, with weekly Metro League matches falling on Wednesdays. We also attend a number of weekend tournaments held during the season and host our own Catholic Schools Tournament for middle school programs in the area. The season typically concludes in early March, with the State Team Championship.
