Kings and Queens Chess Team


The A.W. Brown-FLA Eagles Chess Team is a group of focused individuals, dedicated to the analytical study of strategies, systems, and tactics.

Objectives:

To improve critical thinking skills, in students, vital to academic and social life.

To foster and develop personal character in students by engaging Steven Covey’s seven habits of highly effective people, while having fun, through “perfect practice.”

Chess is the game of Royalty, Military statisticians, and civilized society.

Practice:  TBA

Tournaments:  The Eagles Chess Team is revered as a force to be reckoned with throughout the DFW area. Interscholastic and USCF Chess Tournament dates and locations are announced at least a month in advance, to the Chess Players, throughout the school year. All Chess players are required to compete in each event. Our record for 2010-2011 was 9-0!

Cost: Just $20. Polo Chess Team shirts are to be worn with khaki bottoms in the school picture and with denim bottoms at Tournaments. While Fundraisers are held periodically throughout the year, we greatly appreciate donations in the name of the “A.W. Brown-FLA Chess Team”

Motto: “Focus is the Key to Success”

Coach:
Mr. Kestin Wheeler
