Our aim is to develop chess skills for juniors in Buckinghamshire. We organize chess coaching and county team matches for U9, U11, U14 and U18 age groups. This site provides information about the Bucks Youth Chess Association, details of forthcoming events and their related results.

We also try to include information about chess related events that might be of interest for the above mentioned age groups. 

If you have any news you would like to see on this site, please let us know (bycachess@gmail.com).
