Due to COVID, Chess Club has transitioned to an online format at chess.com! Join at chess.com as a free or paid member and send your username to email@example.com. Professor Thomas will then invite you to join the Lone Star Chess Club and you can participate in our online tournaments. For Fall 2021, we will have a tournament every Wednesday and Thursday at 4pm with a $20 first prize.
If you desire to become a Chess Club member, please sign up using the form below. Participation in the semester Chess Championship is restricted to Chess Club members.
The mission of the Lone Star College-CyFair Chess Club is five-fold:
to provide a safe place to play and study chess in an effort to improve;
to translate improvement in chess into academic success;
to foster development of critical thinking skills;
to promote peace and harmony amongst a diverse student population;
to sponsor a chess team to compete in local and national chess competitions.
Chess Club was voted the Most Improved Registered Student Organization at the Student Life Awards Banquet in May 2014. See our trophy!!!
