Attendance Zones
Roanoke City Public Schools Chess Club
Instructor: Mickey Owens   

Roanoke City Schools is beginning the 30th year offering formal chess instruction for the division's students.  Research has shown that involvement in chess builds self-esteem, critical thinking, logical reasoning skill, memory skills, as well as observational and analytical skills for all children.

The root of the school systems program is the school chess club.  Each school in Roanoke City can offer either a before or after school chess club.  During this time students will receive basic chess instruction from the sponsor with guidance from one of the division's quadrant instructors and division approved lesson plans.

For more information on the Roanoke City School's chess programs, contact your school chess sponsor or
