2022 OMPH Knights Chess Club


The OMPH Chess team is in search of chess players of all levels!   The club is open to students in the parish, religious education, and school that are in 4th through 9th grade.    

The club participates in several events:    

  • The Friendship Chess League, a competition between middle schools in the Lancaster / Lebanon / Hershey areas.     
  • The PA State Chess Championship (delayed this year)
  • The IU13 Elementary and Middle School tournaments (April 2022)
  • Other local tournaments if possible

In order to catch up this year, we;d like to have some extra practices to help bring new players up to speed and knock the rust off our returning players.  If you can’t make all the practices, please don’t let that stop your student from signing up.

Open Practices starting February 8th:  Tuesdays 6:30pm-8pm, Saturdays 9am-11am

Matches:  Wednesdays 3:00pm-5:00pm 

Location:  Father Kuhn Hall (under the old church), OMPH, 300 Church Ave, Ephrata, PA
