LCIMS Chess Club Information

Any 4th -8th grade student  is welcome to play for our chess team. 

Chess practice will begin Monday, Sep. 13

Forms are in the office!

Parents/Guardians will need to meet their son/daughter in front of the school at the flag at the end of practice.

Practices: Practice is key in chess! During these times, you will learn skills, play games with teammates, and be coached by the LCHS Chess Team.  Please note that 4th & 5th grade practice on a different day than 6th – 8th grades. 

A tournament schedule will be provided at the beginning of the school year.  A parent or guardian must be at all tournaments to supervise their child, no exceptions.

Tournaments: Chess is very competitive at tournaments.  The team participates in both individual and team tournaments.  All team members are required to attend tournaments held on Saturdays, at various locations around East TN.


My name is Mrs. Pafunda and I am the LCIMS Chess Coach, along with being an ESL teacher here at LCIMS. I am thrilled to be coaching the team.   It is going to be a great year!
