Chess is an extramural activity offered during the winter terms at SACS Junior.  It is a code in which competition is based not on age groups, but on ability. All boys from Grade 3 to Grade 7 who are able play chess are welcome to join.  Our league includes several schools in the area. We play matches on Friday afternoons and also have fun mini- tournaments during the season.  We are fortunate to have experienced coaches who are able to assist the boys to improve their games.

Chess is a game of strategy. It encourages and trains a player’s concentration.  It has been proven that playing chess may have a significant positive effect on success in Mathematics – an encouraging reason for your son to consider playing chess at school or at home!

Over the years SACS Junior has been proud to produce a number of SA chess champions.
