How we intend to accomplish this great task
We lookout for the outstanding talents in the regions, with more focus on the very young ones.
We take them through the right training and lectures. Enroll them in GM training and teach them on becoming better sportsmen.
We ensure that they participate in all NECESSARY tournaments and locally and internationally.
In cases where there are no or fewer events that they need to play in, we organize the kind of tournaments that will be of the right standard and even players not in the program can benefit.
