“Use the game of chess to enrich lives of the youth of Inland Southern California.”
The RYCA members meet the first Wednesday of every month during the school year. If you have anything to share or a concern that you would like discussed, please send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org subject RYCA
The Riverside Youth Chess Association developed out of Riverside Rotary Club’s chess program at Bryant Elementary School and Association Representative Greg Taber’s chess program at Alcott Elementary School. The school clubs joined with Linda Smith’s citywide scholastic tournament, offered at Sierra Middle School as the “Lee Corbin Scholastic Chess Tournament.” The Riverside Rotary Club, along with others, now sponsor two tournaments as “Riverside Rotary Club's Chess Tournaments.” A new development this year is a pair of day-long Chess Camps, fall and spring, for students to learn chess skills and get ready for tournament play. The Riverside Youth Chess Association also sponsors a U.S. Chess Federation Rated tournament in the spring, for students who are ready to gain national rating points. The R.Y.C.A. officially formed as a non-profit group, working through the Riverside Rotary Club in Spring 2002, with a mission to “use the game of chess to enrich lives of the youth of Inland Southern California.”
