Lower Bucks County Scholastic Chess League


LBCSCL 2022-23

The LBCSCL is the collection of the chess playing high schools in Bucks and Montgomery counties in Pennsylvania. Our league which began in the 1960s seeks to promote the artistry and camaraderie of the game among high schoolers in our area. If you are a player, parent of a player, teacher, or administrator and want more information on how to bring LBCSCL to your school, please contact Varsitychess@gmail.com


After two years online due to the pandemic, we are back "over the board" for 22-23. Registration for this season has begun and will run until October 14, 2022. To register for this season, please contact the league at Varsitychess@gmail.com. We welcome all schools in Bucks and Montgomery counties in Pennsylvania and Philadelphia schools within a reasonable drive. 

Does your school have a chess club with minimally 5 members? Do you have a faculty advisor or coach willing to donate their time? Let us help you get started on working with the LBCSCL!
