The Santa Fe Children’s Chess Club now meets virtually every Wednesday evening at:


2020 Pandemic Adjustments

Spring 2020: we immediately moved to an online chess club, using jitsi for videocon and for games (yay! free/open-source software!)

Two components to virtual chess: videocon and online chess site.

  • Videocon: write to and I will send you the information to connect to our chat room chess club: Wednesdays at 5:45 p.m. we have a lecture. Then at 6:05 p.m. we start game play, typically inviting other clubs and schools from around the state.

  • Online play: Santa Fe students (pre-K to 12th) should go to and make themselves an account on and join the “santafechess” team.

  • Northern Schools Chess League (and other leagues) described here.


Our mission statement is

Bringing critical thinking skills to children through the enjoyment of chess.

Specifically we try to bring Santa Fe’s school age kids together to play chess.

We also offer instruction, we organize tournaments, and we have simultaneous chess matches with strong local players.
