If in China, USA, Germany and other developed countries there is a tendency of increasing the number of youth schools, then, unfortunately, in recent years has been the threat of mass closure of such institutions.
Of course, all this is done very cleverly: formal schools exist, but in what conditions? In the beginning gets a room and school or club move to the outskirts of the city. This can be observed on the example of Donetsk, Kherson and Lviv clubs. But to develop chess or checkers without basic premise is to teach swimmers without pool or players without the stadium.
Further, due to the fact that not every parent will be able to drive the child to do so far, there is a threat of closing the school due to the lack of children. Thus, the younger generation of young athletes dying, and, therefore, this dying sport in the city.
About the opening of a new sport’s school or Chess and Checkers youth schools in General it is not. What to say, even if in the capital of Ukraine no chess club! The trend of closing Chess and Checkers youth schools observed in Kherson, Donetsk, Lviv, and now the same problem has arisen in the Crimea. In June 2011 appeared in the press information on the transfer of the Crimean Republican out-of-school educational institution “Junior chess and checkers sports school” in another room. Local authorities explain this need emergency condition of the building in which the school is located. However, some people believe that it is only a pretext, and, leaving the room, back to school will never arrive. Moreover, an architectural monument, which is the present location of the chess and checkers school, just want to sell to private persons for commercial enterprise. How it corresponds to reality is not known.
Director Simferopol Junior chess and checkers sports school Zhuk Vitaly reports the following: “This move will be temporary. Now we have proposed two options for relocation. One option is normal. The room is in the centre and in good condition, but there are some complications arose: are based on this premise, the University does not want to move, because the term rentals they have completed only in 2017. Therefore, we proposed another option is building on a street Vorovsky. The condition of the building, of course, good, but the problem with transport is acute. Situated near the motorway, and it is dangerous for children, which we do. Besides, don’t go no trolley buses or taxis”.
It became obvious that the fate of Simferopol Junior chess and checkers sports school is in the image and likeness of fate schools of Donetsk, Kherson and Lviv. Minister of education and science, youth and sports of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Dzoz Vitalina was assured that the transfer will happen or before September 1 or at the end of the school year. Therefore, the issue of relocation is already fixed and inevitable. But it might come back to chess and checkers school back in our building after renovation? It’s already on the conscience of the local authorities.
