About the Southeast New England Chess Association

The Southeast New England Chess Association (SENECA) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization that promotes learning and playing the game of chess for charitable and educational purposes.  We organize and run numerous chess tournaments throughout the year at various venues for youth and adult players.  The majority of these events are held in Rhode Island and local Massachusetts.  In addition to tournaments for individuals, we sponsor the Rhode Island Scholastic Chess League in which many local school teams compete during the winter months. For more information about learning or playing chess in southeast New England, please contact us.

SENECA is the official Rhode Island state affiliate of the US Chess Federation. As such, SENECA organizes and runs the annual Rhode Island State Chess Championship and Rhode Island Scholastic State Chess Championship events.
