Players with lost ID numbers

New players who've never played in an SCA chess tournament need to provide grade, school, and contact information. We use this information to run scholastic tournaments and to send newsletter announcements twice a year.

Returning players who've lost their ID numbers need to provide the same information. We use this information to locate your SCA ID number.

Privacy policy: We don't give out your information to anybody, and we send only legitimate SCA information to you at the e-mail you provide. We're into chess, not spam, and that's that.

A future version of this page will securely take your complete contact information online. For now, please print the New Player Form (link below), complete the information, and mail to:
