The Coach of the Year looks for ways not just to improve the chess of his players, but looks for ways to improve chess and chess opportunities in our community
Coaches are the heart and soul of every chess community. When adult players look back on time spent learning and growing with the game, at the center of those memories stands the coach.
Who are chess coaches? What qualities define these extraordinary and generous people? It is first a love of the players. Coaches’ watch their young players learn and grow and make the game their own. They mentor sportsmanship, goal setting, forward thinking and confidence – as well as the ability and desire to compete. They offer reassurance and support in place of criticism. They offer hope and encouragement. The finest coaches improve not only their players’ chess, but improve opportunities for chess in their communities, and improve the game itself.
