Bridge Lessons for Youth

New England Youth Bridge, Inc., a tax-exempt charity, is pleased to offer to teachers of youth bridge programs  a set of lesson plans with teacher’s manual that are designed for use by school bridge clubs.  (Warning: the pdf file for the lesson plans is very long!)

NEYB subscribes to a bridge learning progression of:

  • Teaching play before bidding (that is, using mini-bridge)
  • Teaching declarer play before defender play
  • Teaching notrump play before trump suit play

Although I am the author of the lesson plans and teacher’s manual, the material was based upon several sources that I want to acknowledge and would recommend to both teachers and students of school bridge programs:

This is great Jeff. You did an amazing job here. Thank you for posting this, youth bridge needs our attention. contributions like yours are important…negativity is just destructive.
