Tri-Cities Chess Academy

The Tri-Cities Chess Academy will not be running this year. Instead, I am going to spend my resources starting chess clubs at elementary and middle schools in the tri-cities area.

If you would like a chess club to be set up at your child's school, email me at and I will find a way to donate boards and other materials.

The Tri-Cities Chess Academy (T.C.C.A.) meets once a week and provides chess instruction, game analysis, and competitive matches to students in the Tri-Cities area. The program will be offered in both the spring and the fall. The TCCA will be run by Elite Chess owner, and Naperville North High School chess coach, Jeff DiOrio.

Note: Students must already know how to play chess before registering
