Rumbo a la Maestría project by WOM

FIDE logoThe Commission for Women’s Chess (WOM) has created the project “Rumbo a la Maestría” under the auspices of FIDE.

The goal of this project is to give the possibility of high level training sessions via internet with Grandmasters to a selected group of talented young players from Latin America. The project is divided into three parts:

- First training sessions from January to May
- WOM coordinates the participation of the players in strong international tournaments in America and Europe during the period June-July, giving them the opportunity to achieve their norms and gain more elo points and experience.

The requirements to qualify for the project are:

- Active players under 25 years old
- Not holder of a WIM o WGM title
- Minimum Elo of 2000 and maximum 2200
