    • BridgeBee – Interactive Bridge lessons for every level and a supplemental tool for teachers.
    • Shark Bridge – Online teaching platform for up to 100 tables.
    • Other teaching and self-improvement apps.
    • Marketing / Recruiting and Networking opportunities and discussions.
    • ACBL Marketing – Resource Center and how to engage ACBL Marketing in your campaigns.
    • ABTA – American Bridge Teacher’s Association – Resources for teachers.  
    You can help shape future presentations. We need to hear from you. We are compiling a mailing list of current and prospective teachers of all levels. Our goal is to bring resources to you so that may succeed in your endeavor. Please let us know if you are interested in receiving notifications for upcoming events – RSVP sirajhaji@gmail.com
    NewThe USBF Youth National Bridge Team is creating a 501c(3) nonprofit Youth Bridge Association to spread bridge to their age group peers.  
    "The YBA is a student-run organization committed to helping students explore all bridge has to offer, through our collection of resources and our online competitions. Bridge improves critical thinking and teamwork, lifelong skills that can be applied away anywhere, not only at the bridge table. The YBA is a nonprofit organization founded by members of the US youth national bridge team." More about the YBA.  The YBA is offering free 2-hour seminars starting Saturday August 15, 2020.  DETAILS 
    Course Info: Time: Classes will be held every Saturday on Zoom  1-3 PM EDT.
    Content: We will cover basic bidding and cardplay techniques (1 level opening bids and responses, finesses, high card promotion, etc).
    Register at bit.ly/introtobridge. (Students do not have to have attended the workshop or have any prior experience; we will catch them up in the first class)
