THE WEST LOUISVILLE CHESS CLUB

The West Louisville Chess Club was founded by the Louisville Urban League (www.lul.org) in May 2016. The Louisville Urban League appointed Corbin Seavers, owner of HFS Chess Marketing, as the Club's senior coach and recruiter. 

Our Grade 6 team leaders are Oliver (the team captain) and Robert, (the assistant team captain). Our middle school (Grades 7, 8, 9) team captain is Hailey.

At present the West Louisville Chess Club needs an assistant team captain for the middle school team section, a team captain for K/3, Grades 4 and 5, and a high school team captain (Grades 10, 11 and 12).

Please watch these two videos about the West Louisville Chess Club. Anyone interested in making a tax deductible donation to the West Louisville Chess Club should contact Coach Corbin at urbanlouisvillechess@yahoo.com.

THE SEPTEMBER 16 BACK TO SCHOOL TOURNAMENT

Team Bloom and Engelhard tied for fourth place. Highland Park earned third place. Kuumba Youth Liberation Academy came in a strong second and the West Louisville Chess Club took first! Last year Team Bloom won the League Team Championship trophy! This year it appears as if the West Louisville Chess Club and Kuumba is going to give Team Bloom a real run for their money. Repeat? We will see if Team Bloom's Andrew, Sofia and Charlie are up to the challenge. At the September 16 tournament four students earned a perfect score: Rodney, Saleem, Oliver and Samar. They each earned a five dollar Game Stop gift card. Charlie won a gift card for submitting a correctly recorded game.

Out of that central office, we manage three major chess clubs...The West Louisville Chess Club, the Portland Chess Club and the Newburg Chess Club.

At present, the LMCA's office needs donated furniture and supplies:

*sofas (2)

*rectangular tables and chairs

*pens, pencils, writing tables

*brooms and mops and mop buckets

Our three chess clubs need donated chess equipment and other supplies:

More important we need coaches for each chess club. Contact urbanlouisvillechess@yahoo.com if you are interested. Every coach must go through our training program held at MLCA's Miller Lane office (usually on Saturdays). Tuition is charged.
