Recognizing that the future of our game depends on attracting young players, more and more effort is being spent to introduce bridge at schools and attract young players to our great game.
The CBF, through its Junior Program, plays a leading role in that effort. The program offers promising Canadian youth the opportunity to further advance their bridge skills through a series of mentoring and coaching programs, and ultimately offers them the opportunity to represent Canada at the bi-annual World Youth Team Championships (WYTC).
The CBF fully subsidizes the teams representing Canada at the WYTC. However, due to its limited financial resources, the CBF is usually able to send teams to compete in only two of the four team competitions (Juniors under-25, Girls under-25, Youngsters under-20, and Kids under-15).
With your support we hope to be able to send a third team to the 2018 WYTC in Shanghai, China. You can make an online donation using Visa or MasterCard by clicking here, or by clicking the “Donations to the Junior Fund” on the right hand side of the home page.
On behalf of the Canadian Bridge Federation and the Canadian Juniors, thank you in advance for your generous support.
