We work with teachers, parents and other volunteers to create after school programs where young people can learn to play in a structured environment. We stress card play at the beginning, mixing a certain amount of instruction with actual play. We introduce bidding gradually, feeling that it makes more sense after you learn how to play hands and defend.
Our short-term goal is for students to enjoy learning the pastime of bridge.
Bridge is a great game. Usually, once a school bridge club gets rolling, the game itself will keep the kids coming back.
