Sydney Academy of Chess is a team of people who have one passion in common: teaching chess to others. We’ve been doing it in New South Wales for 22 years.

The director of the Sydney Academy of Chess is Fide Master Brett Tindall. Brett has been coaching chess for over 26 years and has coached at all major events including Australian Junior Championships and World Junior events.

Brett is not only an experienced coach but also a very experienced player and has competed at both national and international level.

He has won many titles such as NSW junior champion, City of Sydney Junior and Senior Champion; he has also won several age titles at Australian Junior events.

Trained coaches

All of Sydney Academy’s coaches are highly proficient players themselves. Coaches are taught effective teaching methods as well as ways of managing groups of children of all ages. Our chess coaches meet regularly to discuss ways in which our teaching can improve.

Continual Improvement

Sydney Academy of Chess is continually seeking ways of improving its service to schools and the public. We encourage our chess coaches to improve their own playing ability. We also look to teaching methods overseas. Currently three of our coaches hold the titles of Fide trainers.
