While schools and other locations have chess teams, this is the official QGCI team. This team combines students from every aspect of the institute who wish to be apart of this group including kids who don’t have a chess team at their school and chess players from around the region. We will play, learn, study, and go to competitions together. With elected team leaders, we will evaluate sportsmanship, qualities of a chess player, and more. In addition, the team will be split up into sections, and take part in weekly matches with division finals and a large championship during a chess season, similar to the National Football League and National Baseball League. The team will create the first National Chess League. This official chess team will gather some of the best youth players around to make chess the important, well-known sport it has been over the years.
