The trainer’s choice on competitive basis

d-22

The meeting of Executive Committee of the Republican public association “Kazakhstan Federation of Chess” (KFC) took place on September 21 in Almaty.

15 members of Executive Committee have taken part in it (including remotely by means of “Skype”). Results of the discussion on performance of national teams of Kazakhstan at 42 World chess Olympic Games which have taken place in Baku was the main question of the meeting.

On results of the current Olympic Games men’s national team has taken the 28th place (from 180) whereas female – 37 (from 140). At the previous Olympic Games our men’s national team has turned out 42 (from 170), female – 6 (from 136).

After results discussion about Baku competition, the first vice-president of KFC Erkin Israilov has announced the decision and the proposal of the president of federation Galimzhan Yessenov:

“He has charged to us to make work of federation even more transparent and open, and also to create the competitive environment in the organization. All this becomes for the purpose of improvement of quality of work of KFC and its trainers. In this regard I report that the president has made the decision to reduce position of the head coach of the women’s national team of Kazakhstan and to relieve of the post the head coach of the women’s national team Pavel Kotsur. For increase in level of athletes and head coaches of national teams (for children and young people, man’s and female) it also suggests to translate from 2017 all trainer’s positions to contract system, and to make selection of trainers through competition. The proposal of the president has been brought up for vote and it is accepted unanimously. As appears from the decision of Executive committee of KFC, the World chess Olympic Games which are taking place each two years will be reference points at evaluation of the work of trainers from now on.”

“In November we will announce competition in which, everyone, including the acting coaches of the national teams by the way, will be able to take part. The choice of the trainer on position will be carried out  by Executive committee the basis of the strategy of training of teams provided by each applicant. Perhaps, there will be also additional parameters. We will discuss rules of competition in the nearest future”,

  • The executive director of KFC Irina Grishchenko
