Kids Bridge

Oh, the people you’ll meet!

What is Kids Bridge?

I give the younger students a place to play bridge with others who are just starting out as well.  All the players have completed at least a beginning set of  lessons.  The purpose is to give them the opportunity to practice and to speed up their play.  It is free!  You just need to sign up ahead of time.  Parents are welcome to stay and watch!  Call 816-237-0519 or e-mail to sign up and get directions.  This is usually held in my home, unless the numbers signing up require a larger space.  We hope to continue this starting some time in 2021.  After building up speed, for those who are comfortable with the idea, we plan to go play at some of the Duplicate Bridge Clubs in the area.

SUMMER 2021 YOUTH LESSONS

Mo-Kan Bridge Academy is offering youth lessons and supervised play on Friday Mornings in conjunction with their duplicate game.  From June 4 through August 13 – most Fridays anyway, they will offer a 45 minute lesson from 9:30 to 10:15, snack break until 10:30, and then continuing lesson/supervised play until noon.  Any students the teacher deems ready for duplicate play may play in the duplicate game from 10:30 until about 2 for no additional charge if they wish, instead of playing in the supervised play until noon.  Cost is $5 per student ages 8 and up!  Adults are welcome to join the lessons for the same $5 as long as they bring a youth to learn too!  Any adults switching to the duplicate game will need to pay an additional $3.  This essentially gives the adults the lesson for free if they wish to play in the duplicate game.  Sign up ahead of time is required and Covid restrictions will be in place as required at the time – so masks!  No need to attend every session -Mo-Kan will provide instruction at your skill level!  Absolute beginners welcome.  See the 2021 summer flyer or check out the Mo-Kan Bridge Academy website.
