There is a growing body of evidence that chess can help ease the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) experienced by so many of our nation’s veterans. ¬†Hampton Roads Chess Association is piloting programs to bring the benefits of chess to our local heroes. ¬†Contact us for more information or to set up an appointment.

HRCA was proud to sponsor an Eagle Scout project that installed a custom mosaic tile chessboard at a local veterans’ retreat center.

Hampton Roads Chess Association is proud to hold a leadership role in the Annual U.S. Armed Forces Open Chess Championship.
