20th Kids for Chess Camp 
(29 & 30 November)
Organised by Cheras Chess Academy 
(Kuala Lumpur)

    The 20th Kids for Chess Camp 2016 took place on 29 & 30 November at the International Youth Centre in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. Almost a hundred participants took part in the bi-annual Chess camp which was organised by the Cheras Chess Academy. 
     The Chess camp was headed by Fide Trainer & Candidate Master Collin Madhavan who was capably assisted by Fide Instructor Olivia Madhavan, Fide National Instructor Ms Doris Wong, Fide National Instructor Bob Yap, Fide National Instructor Genkeswaran, Fide National Instructor Kumaressan, veteran player/coach Eddy Kwan and a number of very capable chess instructors. The coaches are all very qualified, capable, children friendly, very responsive to the needs of the children and were very resourceful in finding new ways in teaching theory to the young minds.   
     All teaching material for the Chess Camp were carefully structured to increase the level of knowledge as well as interest in the game. The Camp had 5 levels of Chess (based on playing strength & theory). All participants received their chess notes and certificate of participation. Apart from theory in the opening, middle-game and endgame, the camp also had special sparring sessions for all levels along with 9 separate training tournaments for the different categories where medals were given out the respective winners. 
     Here are some of the photos that were taken at the Kids for Chess Camp.
