2019 Deaflympics Chess Team

The United States will enter a deaf chess team in the first-ever Deaflympics to include chess as a sport. 

Four deaf chess players and a coach will travel to Chiavenna, Italy to compete in the chess events of the 2019 Winter Deaflympics.

Sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the 2019 Deaflympics, to be held at three locations in northern Italy in December of this year, will host hundreds of athletes from over two dozen countries competing in six sports: alpine skiing, chess, cross country skiing, curling, ice hockey, and snowboarding.  

Please help us get to Italy to represent the United States Deaf Community on the international stage!

Thank you!
