Five FIDE Trainer Seminars to be held in India

The FIDE Trainers’ Commission (TRG) is pleased to announce unprecedented five FIDE Trainer Seminars to be organised by the All India Chess Federation (AICF) in February and March 2022.

India, currently ranked in the top-3 nations in the world and increasingly dominant in junior rankings, is widely seen as the country with a great future. The AICF, together with the Government of India, continues to invest heavily in the development of chess in schools and capacity building, be it organisers, arbiters or trainers.

The FIDE Trainers Seminars will both train and certify local trainers up to international standards. Four of India’s six FIDE Senior Trainers – Ramesh RB, Vishal Sareen, Chandra Sekhar Sahu, and Praveen Thipsay - who have been instrumental in developing the generations of young players - will conduct the seminars.

The AICF made a promise to bring chess to every corner of India and deliver the goods. For the first time, the FIDE Trainer Seminars will be held in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh from February 18-20, in Patna, Bihar from February 25-27, in Bengaluru, Karnataka from March 4-6, in Guwahati, Assam from March 11-13 and in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh from March 25-27.

Full details of each seminar will be available at the AICF website and TRG website. All the potential participants can already make enquiries about registration at
