Welcome to the Green Bay Chess Association!



The city's premier chess club!

silloette piecesChess is a great activity for students of all ages, and the new friendships often last a life-time. It is an activity that does not depend on physical size or capabilities. It helps develop logic, memory, and planning - critical problem solving skills. This is something that few other activities do. Best of all it is fun

The purpose of the Association is to broaden and develop chess as a significant element of cultural life in Wisconsin. The Association cooperates with chess clubs, schools, and other groups and institutions throughout Wisconsin in teaching chess and conducting tournaments.
