Attendance Zones
Roanoke City Public Schools Chess Club
Instructor: Mickey Owens   
The Chess tournament scheduled for this Saturday April 18, 2015 has been moved from Fallon Park Elementary School to Fishburn Park Elementary School.  Fishburn Park School is located at 3057 Colonial Avenue, next to Virginia Western Community College, the Gator Aquatic Center,  and James Madison Middle School.  The entrance is on Overland Road.  Registration opens at 8:00 am and games start at 10:00 am.
Roanoke City Schools has been offering formal chess instruction for the division's students for over 30 years..  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
