Trinity’s Chess Club is intended to improve the skills of those interested in chess by providing weekly opportunities for lessons and playing time. The Trinity Chess Club participates in the Jefferson County Public Schools chess league. The league competes October through January, with a tournament at the end of the season.
Trinity also competes in the Kentucky Chess Association’s Scholastic Chess Tournament during the winter months. Trinity hosted the State Scholastic Tournament in 2005 and 2013.
Trinity will build on its recent success in the state tournaments. The Chess Rocks placed second in the state overall in 2005, 2011 and 2013. Additionally, John Ruhl ’06 and Joel Lowery ’08 were individual state champions for their grade levels.
The Chess Rocks welcome all levels of players. Chess Team members are required to join the US Chess Federation.
Additional information can be found at the Kentucky Chess Association website.
