The Virginia Scholastic Chess Association

Help to Support Isaac Steincamp's Road to New Orleans

Isaac is a longtime VSCA player, volunteer, tournament organizer and recent board member. As president of the Maggie L. Walker Governor's School Chess Club, he revitalized the chess team, organized free monthly chess clinics for the community, and coordinated the Dragon Chess Camp the past 3 summers. His current US Chess rating is 2105.

Now a freshman at the University of Pittsburgh, his goal is to compete in the 2016 U.S. Junior Open in New Orleans... and Win!
