Who we are
South Texas Chess Associates (STCA) is the home for Chess Training and Open Tournaments in the Coastal Bend Area of South Texas. We work very closely with the Optimist Coastal Bend Chess Federation. (OCBCF) OCBCF maintains a focus on Scholastic Chess in one of the most active areas of the country for Scholastic Chess. We work with Region VII Chess. We also work with Region VIII Chess whenever possible and would like to work with chess groups in San Antonio. We seek to provide training for students as well as Open tournaments designed to give adults an opportunity to play and "toughen up" scholastic players.
We provide information on tournaments throughout the South Texas area (From San Antonio to the Rio Grande Valley) as long as we are informed. Information will be available on our website and through our South Texas Chess Newsletter. (If you want to subscribe, click on the previous link and type "subscribe" in the body of the letter.) Have other questions, want more information? Feel free to e-mail us with your questions. If you have information about upcoming events, e-mail us and let us know. We will be happy to add it to our calendar of events.
STCA provides a full range of books and equipment for players of all ages. If you don't see it, I can work to get it. We work with schools to help them get the best prices for large orders or raise funds selling books and/or equipment to their students.
