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.
– Second training sessions from August to December

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
