WEEKLY RATED PLAY

The CCCSA conducts a weekly US Chess rated game every Tuesday night. This is a great way for players to get weekly practice without committing a whole weekend to play a tournament. In addition, there is a free lecture before the games begin. 

 

TNA (lecture and game) is free for members!
