Chess is a recreational, co-curricular activity offering opportunities to represent the School or play socially. Even though the GPS Chess season is concurrent with that of Basketball and Rugby, games are arranged so that any boy participating in either of these sports may also be a member of a Chess team. Each round of GPS Chess mirrors the Basketball/Rugby draw for that week. Games are held on Friday evening and boys are entered in one of six divisions. Training and practice sessions are held twice a week during the season and once a week in the off-season. A number of local tournaments are held in the off-season and boys are encouraged to sign up for these. Full coaching and instruction are offered for the GPS teams.
