Storing your chess boards
Rolling up chessboards with squares facing out helps them lay flat again later when in use.
Do you need chess clocks?
If you're just starting out, they are not essential. However it's common to get one to five chess clocks early on in your club plan to equip players with chess timing skills. If your players will compete at state, regional, or national levels this will be an important skill to acquire. Playing with a chess clock adds a new level of strategy and calculation. It also helps with fairness, timeliness, and schedules. If you decide to add chess clocks to this kit, these are recommended.
- DGT 1001 (basic digital countdown)
- DGT 1002 (digital plus some special timing methods)
- DGT North American (all timing methods 99% of players will ever use).
