Good day dear readers Fenix-64. Inthis article I want to give an exhaustive answer to the question that I hear every year by many parents. From what age to start playing chess or checkers?
The answer to this question will depend on the goals that are put in front of the parents.
Their only two:
– For common development.
– Professional training.
If your goal is the education of comprehensively developed personality, in this case it is enough to bring a child to study in the sports school. Currently inRussiaand inUkrainechess schools(DYUSSH) accept children to study in sections of chess and checkers with 6 years. This is due to the fact that in this age, the child becomes more conscious. It is not described in training, but was asked to go to the toilet. The child does not go away in an unknown direction on known to him only reason. He will be engaged in training, as he understands that he has come to do just that. At this age, children become more attentive. Your child is growing rapidly. These age restrictions allow coaches to teach a group of children, which makes the class more interesting.
BUT for the training of professional sportsmen better to start training early. As before, you ask me? Personally, I believe that the sooner the better. Earlier age allows for individual training. To every child needs its own approach, which can only find his parents. The youngest chess player I have seen in the age of 2 years. Parents were able to learn the names of chess pieces and the child could tell their color. 3.5 he already began to play. And in 9 years has already become a candidate master of sports in chess. If the parents of this child will permit me, at the end of this article will place a home video of this family, for clarity. However, if your child was not playing in 2 years – this does not mean that he would never make a professional athlete. Every child is special. Someone can begin to teach your child at the age of 2 years, and someone at the age of 4 years. Both children can show the same results. The result is affected by many factors, but will talk about this in the following article.
I hope that this article could give an exhaustive answer to the question: From what age to start to play chess and checkers?
