About Us

Dounnamed (1)minion Scholastic Chess (DSC) is a non-profit organization established to teach and promote the lifelong benefits of the game of chess to students throughout the Virginia area. DSC is located in the greater Fredericksburg area and facilitates numerous events in partnership with local schools and libraries throughout the county.


DSC is committed to the promotion and development of strategic thinking skills within students. Worldwide, chess is still a popular game, but it is treated with particular seriousness in Eastern Europe. For instance, the Bulgarian National Olympic Committee has been lobbying for chess to be recognized as an Olympic sport. We believe that chess is a game that can take our participants many places.
