The Focus of Our Efforts

Charity Tournaments

In-Person tournaments where we partner with charities to raise money for different causes. We plan to have about six to eight annually. A majority portion of entry fees goes to the partner charity or cause.

Programs and Workshops

Programs taught by experienced Chess players who have USCF ratings and have competed in various tournaments. Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced classes are offered. Programs are free for students K-12 and take place during the summer. Workshops are done throughout the year.

Education Equity

In past years, we have seen a growing disparity in education across socio-economic classes. In 2023, SLCA is committed to fight education inequity through non-profit partnerships and workshops in underserved communities.
