MOMMY or DADDY & ME CLASS for ages 18 months + up

The City of Port Hueneme is offering a new class “Learn How to Play Chess” to introduce the game of Chess to children and adults.
Wednesdays from 3:30 - 5:30pm at the Community Center.
Class instructor is Dr. Alexander Bykovtsev. According to Dr. Bykovtsev, “Chess is one of the most powerful educational tools available to strengthen a child’s mind. It’s fairly easy to learn how to play. Most six or seven year olds can follow the basic rules. Some kids as young as four or five can play. Just like learning a language or music, an early start can help a child become more proficient. Whatever a child’s age, however, chess can enhance concentration, patience, and perseverance, as well as develop creativity, intuition, memory, and most importantly, the ability to analyze and deduce from a set of general principles, learning to make tough decisions and solve problems flexibly.

“Chess is a test of patience, nerves, willpower and concentration. It enhances your ability to interact with other people. It tests your sportsmanship in a competitive environment. Chess improves schoolwork and grades. Numerous studies have shown that children obtain higher reading and math levels, and a greater learning ability overall as a result of playing chess, thus increasing their overall self-esteem. Chess opens up the world for your child. It is a universal language. Most tournaments welcome players of all abilities. Chess enables you to meet many interesting people and encourages you to make new friends.”

There is no fee for this class. For more information call the Community Center at (805) 986-6542.
