The official website of the USVI Chess Federation

6 federations joined the USVI Chess Federation in a weekend of celebrating chess.

The 5th Edition of the CARIFTA Chess Championship was held at the Divi Carina Bay Beach Resort over the Easter Weekend. 

Teams from Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago and Suriname played alongside our local children in 3 different categories: Under 12, Under 16 and Under 20.

The tournament was a great success and all participants had a great time. On some boards there were tears, on others there were smiles - regardless everyone enjoyed themselves and learned something from each game they had. The youngest player was 7 years old and the oldest was 19.

CARIFTA 2016 has come to an end
