by Sagar Shah - 05/10/2021

A country becomes a superpower in any sport only when the work at the grassroot level is done consistently. The All India Chess Federation has launched the Chess For Everyone project where it will be organizing training camps for each district to help the growth of arbiters, organizers and chess players. These will be online programs that will begin from November. But if you are interested to get high level training to become an arbiter, organizer or a strong player, this is your chance. 

All India Chess Federation under Chess for Everyone project is going to organizing district wise Arbiter and Organiser Training as well as Coaching Camps for players for grass root level development of the game. It is envisaged to kick start these online programs from 1st week of November as per the following modalities.

Arbiter Training

Each district can enroll two candidates (preferably one male and one female) for this 30 hour program including exam spread over 4/5 days to cover all the aspects for officiating an event. The final exam will be objective type. After successful completion of the training the candidates will be awarded with National Arbiter Title. The fee will be Rs. 500 for each candidates and there will be 50% concession for participants from North East and Andaman.

India has been blessed to have some world class arbiters. With such programs AICF is ensuring that many more competent arbiters are created in the years to come. 

National Organizer

Each district can enroll two candidates for this 30 hour program including exam spread over 4/5 days to cover all the aspects for conducting an event. The final exam will be objective type.
