Welcome to the LSCA
We are the official body for schools chess in Leinster. Our leagues have 4 sections:
Primary, Minor (U14), Junior (U16), & Senior (U19)
running from October to February.
The leagues begin with a group stage, paired mainly on a geographical basis. Usually the top 2 teams advance to the knockout stages.
The LSCA leagues act as the official Leinster qualifiers for the All Ireland Championships.
Since 1942 the LSCA has hosted the Leinster Junior Championships. We also select the U16 & U19 Leinster teams for the Irish Junior Interprovincials.
