Entrenching reward system,titled players
I am informed that Egypt has adopted a reward system for top 10 rated players. In Nigeria, I believe that *ALL* titled players (arbiters, trainers, etc) should be thus professionally recognised through sustainable income. This would give much needed incentive to both the recipients and the aspiring. It would also help with gaining parent support. Chess is seldom viewed, in Nigeria, as an alternative source of income. This makes parents and guardians sceptical about time spent on it.
Incidentally, I believe the same kind of permanent programme is due with regards to all sports!
This is a nice idea. A reward system for top players, Arbiters and Titled Players.
In my opinion, if this has to be achieved, we must set a standard.
Maybe top ten players, Not so sure about International Arbiters and titled players.
