CYO Chess Team (After school):

This is our chess team for school v. school competitions. It is a series of after-school Wednesday practices (3-4p, August-Sept), followed by five weeks of Wednesday matches at other schools (3-6p, October-November), and a big Saturday tournament (8a-3p, Nov. 18). Matches have age groupings: 3rd Gr. & Under, 6th & Under, 8th & Under. It is coached by Mike Chapuran (STA dad and founder of Indy Chess) and Kevin Hoy (former STA grandparent and husband of our former science teacher and current robotics coach Mrs. Sandy Hoy).

It costs $50 (fee we pay to CYO) + $15 for a T-shirt (only if needed; we’re using the blue sausage ones again). It is only for K-8 kids who plan to participate in the matches.
