Welcome to the home of the Delaware Youth Chess Organization!

Kuumba Students 1
The Delaware Youth Chess Organization (DYCO) is committed to providing scholastic chess for all children throughout Delaware. Numerous studies show the academic, psychological, cognitive and social benefits of chess for youth players so we will continue in our effort to make sure every student has the opportunity to grow through chess.
Our current focus is on organizing scholastic tournaments and providing resources for people to start their own school/community youth chess clubs.
In the future we aim to start the first Delaware Youth Chess League, support DE representatives to compete in National Youth Chess Events, and expand the network of chess coaches in the region.
