Furthermore, you can use the Rating Converter down below to help you figure out which group to join.


Please use the converter below to choose your appropriate rating level. All programs are based off of FIDE Classical ratings, and we've provided a table to help players figure out which group to join. While there is no exact science for a rating conversion, these are general estimates based on data we have collected. Remember that upon signing up, you will get access to all 21 plans (from 0-2500) and can easily switch to a different training plan whenever you like.
