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 scholastic 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.

new Kelly and Luke tie for 1st place at State Bughouse Chess Championship!

 bughousetrophywinnersThe Wisconsin State Scholastic Chess Championships were held on the weekend of March 18-19, 2017 on the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Campus. On Saturday evening Tim Hiddemen, the coach of the Waupaca High School team, ran the 2017 Wisconsin State Bughouse (Siamese) Chess Championship.

Around 40 teams of players of all ages competed in the 5 round event. Each round consisted of 2 games each, so that each team member played 1 game with white and 1 game with black against an opponent. Kelly and Luke finished with an 8-2 score, which put them in a 3-way tie for first place! On tie breaks, they took home Second Place Individual Trophies.
