Welcome to our website! The Connecticut State Chess Association (CSCA) is a statewide sanctioning, service, support and membership
organization, staffed by a volunteer Board of Directors, working for the benefit of Connecticut's chess community. Our goal is to promote
chess in CT.
The CSCA is Connecticut's affiliate chapter of the United States Chess Federation (USCF), which is the national sanctioning body for
chess tournaments, and a primary general chess resource.
We encourage promising initiatives, worthy programs and exceptional activities with funds acquired from the USCF, member dues, and
other sources. Working members can also provide free consultation and referrals.
We especially support new programs at schools. Please contact David Aldi (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to know more about this.
You can also contact him if you'd like to donate sets and clocks in support of these programs.
Membership in the CSCA is open (you don't even have to be a Connecticut resident). The only requirement is a $5 yearly contribution, which
(as it is applied to crucial operating expenses) helps sustain state-level resources, events and promotions, and secures national
representation for area chessplayers. Members can play in sanctioned tournaments, receive informational mailings, and elect their CSCA
representatives at the Annual Membership Meeting.
We hope you agree: that's a good investment. Join us!
