Alan Schlank, Treasurer United States Braille Chess Association

Welcome to our Athlete Development Account page! The
U.S. Braille Chess Association
 will use the funds in this account to enhance competitive opportunities for blind chess players. The most immediate priority is to send Alex Barrasso to this May’s world championship for blind players. The U.S. has not been represented at this event for over 30 years. We also plan
to support participation of teams of blind players in events organized  by the U.S. governing body for chess, the U.S. Chess Federation
 . Blind players used to participate regularly in these tournaments. A more long-term
Goal is to become more active internationally, and hopefully to send a team to the
2016 chess Olympiad for blind players. We thank the U.S. Association of Blind Athletes
for its support.
