WELCOME TO THE OHSCTA WEBSITE!
Since the 1960's the Oregon High School Chess Team Association (OHSCTA) has encouraged Oregon high schools to
form leagues to play competitive chess. Our goal is to bring this fun, educational sport to all
high schools in Oregon.
At the end of each chess season, we sponsor the Oregon High School Chess Team Association Championships, where all teams in Oregon gather together to determine the best of the best!
In our unique competition format, five-player varsity teams from schools of all sizes compete together in
a single section to determine both overall state champions and champions from each of the OSAA classifications--1A, 2A,
3A, 4A, 5A and 6A. In a separate section, five-player junior varsity teams from schools of all sizes compete together
for overall state and OSAA classification junior varsity honors.
The OHSCTA formula is simple:
Chess + High School + Teamwork = Excitement!
If you are interested in joining or forming a league, contact one of our officers or check out the Participating Schools page for a mentor in your area.
