Saturday programs are open to students by invitation, and parents should consult with their child’s teachers.

The chess team practices Saturday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Students need additional chess instruction in tournament tactics to become competitive players. Saturday sessions go beyond Yalow’s regular Tuesday and Thursday chess classes, exploring traps, zaps, and endgame tactics.

Yalow’s fencing team practices using electric épées (one of the three fencing weapons). First session: 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Second session: 12:30-2:30 p.m., for advanced second and third graders.
