The 2020 State Quick and Blitz Championships will be held online at ICC - Details pending.

ISCA and the Internet Chess Club (ICC) has entered a promotional agreement to run tournaments online. Our state afiliate now has a sepecial page at that our members can login to play chess online. Our webpage is: 

This website is designed to make it easy for players not familiar with ICCs software, such as Blitzin, Dasher, and ICC for Windows. All one need do is login to the site, and begin playing. There's nothing to download, although these clients are available for download: Blitzin, Dasher, ICC for Windows, and ICCfor Mac clients. More detailed information will be forthcoming as players register.

ICC has been online since 1995, and has been a fee based server since. However, due to the current pandemic, ICC has been waiving their fee for organizations like ours where state affiliates can offer coupons to our players who wish to participate in our tournaments. These coupons give full access to ICC where you can play, watch premium videos from Grandmasters and other titled players, as well as practice tactics through Trainingbot, Playbot, and others.

We hope that you will try out some games at ICC. We hope that you will join other ISCA members online at ICC for some games. If you are interested, please contact Craig Hines, ISCA President at He will send, via email, the coupon codes that will allow you to register at ICC for free. When you receive those codes, you will simply logon to and then use the Register Now button to enter your information, and coupon code.
