Founded in 2018, New York Chess Academy (NYCA) organizes programs and services for all levels and ages, which include camps, after-school classes, private lessons, and tournaments.
Each member of our enthusiastic team has had their life positively affected by chess. It is this passion for the game and the desire to share it with others that led to the founding of the academy.
New York Chess Academy is determined to promote chess, in all its aspects, to all those interested in it; discover new talents and develop self-confidence, decision-making skills, friendships, and sportsmanship; and, ultimately, lead to excellence.
A key part of the New York Chess Academy’s vision is equality. Through treating everyone with respect, we aim to lead by example and encourage a sense of unity and camaraderie among chess players.
