The New Jersey State Chess Federation (NJSCF) is an organization dedicated to the advancement of chess. For many years, the NJSCF has been holding chess tournaments in order to give New Jersey players an outlet to play. The NJSCF has also been supporting chess clubs around the state both with funding and advertising through our top notch magazine, the Atlantic Chess News (ACN).
Over recent years, the NJSCF has started the Sets for Vets program and has donated thousands of dollars in chess sets, boards, and clocks to veteran’s homes all over the state! Another of the areas in NJ chess in which we excel is our scholastic chess program. We provide several tournaments throughout the year in order both to give kids several chances to play in a state championship!
Finally, we have two big name national tournaments every year: the World and US Amateur Team East and the US Amateur East Individual tournament. The NJSCF stays active in both state-wide and national chess. Come join us at a tournament today!
