BCJCA is about innovation leadership teamwork network

Who are we?

We are an organization of students with an initiative of bringing together high school chess players through tournaments and matches. We are currently working towards hosting an inter-school league consisting of teams across British Columbia, with in-person qualifiers leading to a final provincial tournament. Our goal is to promote a more connected chess community and strengthen the secondary school chess scene by connecting chess clubs. Currently, we have over 60 clubs representing from all across the Lower Mainland and 300+ members in our community, whom we connect with through our website, our community server, and social media.

In the future, we hope to support the creation of chess clubs at schools, continue to host regular in-person tournaments, and teach elementary students the foundations of chess.
