Viking Chess Team
The Viking Chess Team meets weekly, on Thursdays, at the Viking in the main hallway of the Atlantic City High School. Our meetings are held immediately after school, and are followed by bus transportation home for students. New members are always welcome, including those trying chess for the first time. All that is required is that you show up for a meeting of the club, and you are in! Meetings include lessons, tutorials, over-the-board play, and tournaments. It is usually the case the several ACHS teachers join our meetings, so students might have a chance to beat one of their teachers in a game of chess! The Viking Chess Team also plays online, at chess.com, where we host a private scholastic club for team members. Through our online play activities, students will have a chance to compete against high school teams from across the USA, and all over the world.
