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.
