Each year, 50-80 middle schoolers from Nicollet Middle School come together to make up the Nicollet Knights Chess Team with aspirations of greatness. The Nicollet Chess Club nurtures an atmosphere for beginners and experienced players to grow and develop and learn the lessons competitive chess has to offer. Formerly Metcalf Masters Chess Club, we have earned 29 state championships and 19 National first place finishes over the years.
