“Chess is recognized as the ultimate game and is not simply a game but a learning tool for the development of the mind, and just happens to be in the form of a game. How fortunate we all are to have an easy method of exercising and developing much deeper thought processes in our minds while also amusing the simpler side of our nature.” - www.chess-poster.com

The creation of the SCCA (South Carolina Chess Association) was due in large part to the efforts of Mr. Elmer B. Hallman of Spartanburg.  A resolution adopted at the association's 1926 organizational meeting noted that Mr. Hallman "by the exercise of his energy, tact, enthusiasm and zeal, brought about such interest, in South Carolina, in the game of chess as to make a State Chess Association a possibility. . . ."


Please support the SCCA's scholastic chess with the same energy, tact, enthusiasm and zeal.  The actions of today shape the future of tomorrow.


THANK YOU for visiting and for knowing the value of chess !


If you are interested in being more involved in South Carolina scholastic chess, you've come to the right place.  Contact me anytime.
