(chess training for Intermediate level)
Holiday Chess Camp
(chess training for Beginners)
(Collin Madhavan FT)
August holidays Chess Camp attracted eighty plus participants. The 2-day
chess training organised by Cheras Chess Academy was held at the International Youth Centre in
Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. Apart from the Beginners Holiday Chess Camp, the
stronger players attended the training on further understanding in the
Openings and the Endgames.
The Chess camp was headed by Fide Trainer & Candidate Master Collin Madhavan, who was
ably assisted by Fide Instructor Olivia Madhavan, Fide National Instructor Ms Doris Wong, Fide Instructor
Genkeswaran, Fide Instructor Kumaressan 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 was carefully structured to increase the level of knowledge as well as interest in the game. 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 separate training tournaments for the different categories. Medals were given out based on their assessment scores and playing performance.
Here are some of the photos from the 2-day Chess Camp.
