In past articles we have discussed the importance of the mode of the day sportsmen. I described a rough sport mode, which adhere to itself as a player, and promised to comment on the correct mode of the day for parents of young players.
As a coach, I want to say that children are a special category of players requiring special attention coaches and parents, as a growing organism unpredictable and individual to a greater extent than adult.
The same load for someone is insufficient, and for someone to be unbearable. So you should have patience and , so to speak, to experiment, before set the optimal correct mode of the day young chess player.
In previous articles I’ve shown how you are organizing your own training. For the parents of the players will do several explanations:
– children under 7 years of this routine should not be followed, because they have their own cycles of sleep and nutrition. Studying chess can pass on a similar plan, but you need to consider the personal abilities of each.
– children from 7 to 14 years, you can deviate from the described sports mode. This particularly applies to the time eating and sleeping. Children of this age are very active, they can and should eat more often. This also applies for the duration of sleep. I.e., it is advisable to comply with the proposed mode of the day, but at 50-60 percent.
– teenagers from 14 years need to adhere to the schedule as much as possible. For them the correct mode of the day will determine the chess success.
Also note that it is not always studying chess appropriate in the morning. It depends on the priorities chosen by parents.
When chess for the child are paramount, and they are driven by the pursuit of knowledge and the search for truth in this sphere, in the first half of the day is to give priority to chess training. In this case, you can count on effective learning and good results.
If the young player like to beat the rivals, but he wasn’t trying to do the job of a coach and do not themselves engaged without reminder, here better chess classes move to the second part of the day. In this case, chess will treat intellectual training, and school – to true knowledge. Usually these children are extremely fond of playing blitz and classical chess for them boring. Here, too, you can expect good results, but not so much in chess, as in the study of school subjects, because chess develop mental abilities.
The correct mode of the day will significantly accelerate the development of the child, both in sport and in General education. But even if, despite all efforts from Your side, your baby will not become a world chess champion, he will become a champion of their own destiny because you have the key to success: developed intellect, good health and peace.
