RE: Susan Polgar All-America Girl’s Team
On behalf of the Susan Polgar Foundation, I would like to propose a co-creation of a Susan Polgar All-America Girl’s Team with the United States Chess Federation starting in 2007. My foundation will award each winner a special “Susan Polgar All-America Girl’s Team” jacket and plaque as well as other valuable chess products.
In addition, each winner will receive an invitation to attend a very special week long intensive all-girl’s training program (and / or 2-3 day special sessions at various times throughout the year) which will be sponsored by my foundation. This would be similar to the program I created for the 2004 US Women's Olympiad team which brought unprecedented historic results.
They will be joined by other most talented young female players in this nation. They will be taught by me personally as well as some of the most experienced chess trainers in the United States. I hope that this program will help produce a number of world-class female chess players in the future, something that this country sorely needs.
Thank you for your support and cooperation with this very important project.
Winner of 4 Women’s World Championships
and 10 Olympiad Medals (5 Gold, 4 Silver, 1 Bronze)
