Dear Member Federations,
As we have recently announced, FIDE has entered into a six-year commercial partnership with Chessable, the world’s leading chess E-learning platform.
As part of this agreement, we are launching the FIDE Chessable Academy, a three-year junior educational program to be implemented by the FIDE Trainers Commission (TRG).
We are inviting all member federations to nominate two of your very best young talents, a boy and a girl, between the ages of 8 to 16.
Your federation is also entitled to have additional places if you have any young talent in the top five rankings in their age group (under-8, under-10, under-12, under-14, and under-16, as per the 2021/01/01 rating as well as any winners at the World Youth and Cadets Championships 2019 (open and girls) in the same age group categories.
In 2021, the program will run from June to December and will provide a minimum of two hours online every two weeks. At least the top 12 participants will be selected to attend one or more training camps by legendary players.
During the entire duration of the training programme, a panel of experts of FIDE and Chessable will oversee the progress of the participants, provide assignments, and work together in the evaluation of the young talents. Chessable will also provide learning materials and lessons, free of charge.
Please confirm your participation by filling up the attached form below and returning it, with your signature, to firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than 21 May 2021.
In order to receive the training and join the online classrooms, it is mandatory that all participants register a free Chessable account at www.chessable.com, and provide us with his or her username.
