A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the team attend the 2015 National Elementary Chess Championship, which will be in Nashville, Tennessee beginning on May 8. The funds will be used for hotel, bus transportation, meals and entry fees, according to the account description.

Nichols said 14 players from last year's championship team are returning this year. “We stand a great chance of repeating,” he said.
