Welcome to the PEI YCA website!

 The Prince Edward Island Youth Chess Association (PEIYCA) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to promoting scholastic chess on PEI.  We hold various chess events throughout the year for school-aged children: regular tournaments, training sessions, and a summer chess camp.

 See our Calendar of Events for details on all these events.

The PEIYCA AGM is on Wednesday Sept 27 at 7 pm.
 Menna MacIsaac has graciously offered to host the AGM at her home at 5 Devon Court in Charlottetown. 
Everyone is welcome to attend.
We will have a synopsis of the past year by the current president, Aaron Rainnie, as well as the Treasurer's report. There are several Board of Directors positions to fill. You can read our by-laws at http://www.peiyca.ca/board-of-directors
Please consider assisting in what ever way possible. We rely on volunteers to run our association and our tournaments. Please contact me if you have any questions.
The upcoming schedule of events for 2017-2018 school year will be decided at the AGM.
We hope to see you there!
