How are chess useful for children?
If you've been putting off something like learning chess with your family, use the time you'd normally be out and about.

When playing chess, the child calculates a large number of combinations and chooses the best. During the class, the coach discusses it with the child what purpose each move may have.

Thanks to the ability to analyze and plan, the child will understand how to achieve his/her goals in school, favorite hobbies or future profession.
A child learns to analyze
Fact №1
Together with a sports psychologist, the child will learn to treat defeats as an opportunity to gain valuable experience, be able to analyze his/her and the opponent's actions, a playing style and psychological characteristics.

You will notice that it becomes easier for a child to communicate with peers and teachers, he/she will begin to better understand oneself and the world around.
Chess develops emotional intelligence
Fact № 2
Develop visual, chronological, figurative types of memory. During a game of chess, a child needs to memorize a large number of algorithms and the arrangement of pieces on the board, previous moves.

Chess forms the skill of memorization for life.
It will be easier for the child to master the school curriculum and he/she will be able to leave a place in his/her schedule for new hobbies.

Fact №3
The child will learn to make decisions quickly and use his/her time as efficiently as possible in conditions of different time limits of each game format (classes and tournaments).

Your child will learn to properly manage the time. At home, your child will do more things, alternating rest and activities. You do not have to constantly monitor his/her actions.
Time management
Fact №4
The ability to set goals and achieve them is valuable in almost every area of life. Chess, like any other sport, requires determination and rivalry.

The child receives life experience, but at the same time "gets the knocks" without unnecessary losses and with the support of trainers and psychologists. Unlike other sports, the child is not being traumatized.

Advantages of online learning at the Russian Chess School
The current situation has forced many educational institutions to switch to the online format. However, in the new conditions processes are often not finished. This causes discomfort for both children (many uncomfortable programs, an uncomfortable form of presentation) and parents (who have to be involved in the learning process and understand the technical settings).
9 years of an online learning experience
We have gathered our 10-year experience of studying online, combined modern technical tools with the traditional approach to chess education, gone through the path of trial and error, and today we are giving a proven solution for your children.
You do not need to waste time on commuting school. Any device with Internet access and a notebook is suitable for online classes. The child is more involved in the process, and learning is more productive: he/she is not tired on the road, the coach does not spend time on organizational issues, late pupils do not distract the group, and placing chess pieces on the monitor screen does not take much time.
Save time and increase productivity
All these factors influence the effectiveness of learning so children succeed in an online program much faster.
We make sure that education is comfortable for children without distracting them on technical problems.
Technological and comfortable learning environment
The coach has also prepared technical means for effective e-teaching:
Zoom for conducting a lesson (both in a group and individually)
Chess Base for the study of theory (examples of the games of great chess players, analysis of the games of students, learning of openings) for training parties (live game, simultaneous sessions with the coach, playing with each other) for homework and practice (task solving and tournaments)
Russian Chess School is the only school with more than 30 trainers. This variety allows you to choose a convenient time for classes, create a schedule, choose a group based on the level of chess preparation and preferences for the teaching approach. Any of your wishes are taken into account.
Over 30 coaches and groups according to the level of the game
The child will be comfortable studying and will not have to be in the role of "catching up" or be bored because he/she is much ahead of the group in terms of his/her level. If a child develops chess skills faster than a group, we help him choose a coach and a group according to his/her level.
Groups are up to 10 people depending on the age and chess level of children
For preschoolers of 5-6 years old, we provide groups of no more than 4-5 people. In this age category, a teacher also assumes the educational function. In small groups, it is better to keep the concentration of children. Pupils are engaged in 5-8 people groups and the occupancy of the online class depends on the level of training.
Small groups allow the trainer to devote enough time to each child, find an approach to him/her and see strengths and weaknesses. Children will be able to ask questions and keep up with their peers. Parents will receive feedback from the school.
Convenient training schedule:
7 days a week from 10 am to 9 pm
The school's schedule is created so that children can easily combine chess learning with other activities.
Even if you would like an intensive program of 3 or more lessons per week, the child will not be overloaded. He/she can choose the lesson schedule when his/her perception of information and effectiveness are higher.
