Rhode Island Scholastic Chess League

Each year, SENECA organizes and runs the Rhode Island Scholastic Chess League (RISCL). The RISCL consists of teams from schools in the state of Rhode Island and gives students the opportunity to play chess against other students in the spirit of healthy competition.

The RISCL is broken into three separate leagues: elementary school (grades K-5), middle school (grades 6-8), and high school (grades 9-12).

All of the RISCL rules for the 2018 season can be found here: Rhode Island Scholastic Chess League Rules 2018.
