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

Start date for 6th – 8th is Sep 18.

Start date for 4th and 5th Grades is Sep 20.

Parents/Guardians will need to meet their son/daughter at the far left front of the building near the softball field.

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.
