Welcome to Terrian Chess Academy

As an emerging sport access to learning and playing Chess still remains a big challenge to many Kenyans due to, among others, the lack of trainers and schools where such an exercise can be undertaken. And easy access to equipment - chess sets and boards can also hamper the uptake in playing chess.

This void is what Terrian Chess Academy (TCA) was founded to fill. Without despising a humble beginning, TCA has steadily, in collaboration with the crème de la crème in the chess world, enrolled children in learning chess. As the chess skills and the mastery is imparted to the young learners, the national junior team will be constantly beefed up while preparation for the senior team is grounded. This conveyor belt of producing talent is what shall catapult Kenya to producing great results on the big stage.
