Mentoring Program
February 3 to June 28, 2020

The next round of the club mentoring program begins February 3, 2020 and runs through June 28, 2020. Mentoring pairs are encouraged to sign up at once.

The goals of the mentoring program are to:

  • Engage newer bridge players, giving them a positive experience and encouraging them to advance in their play by playing with a more experienced partner in an ACBL sanctioned game setting;
  • Engage experienced players as mentors, tapping into their expertise and commitment to the game;
  • Promote good bridge behavior and etiquette.

Program Requirements:
  • All participants must be current ACBL members.
  • Prior mentorship pairs are not eligible to be paired together a second time.
  • Mentees should have under 500 masterpoints (MPs). Those with 200-500 MPs may be a mentee only if they also agree to be a mentor to a newer player.
  • Those with fewer than 200 MPs can also apply to be a mentor to a new player. There must be a minimum of 50 MPs separating the mentor from the mentee.
  • A player may mentor only one mentee at a time under the program.
  • A player must have only one mentor at a time under the program.
  • It is recommended that partnerships play at least twice a month at a time convenient for the two players.

How to sign up:

ACBL members who play, or plan to play, at the Severna Park Bridge Club may join the program. Players are encouraged to establish their own mentoring pairs and complete a
Mentoring Agreement. Players who would like help finding a mentor or mentee should complete a Mentoring Program Request Form. You can download or print these forms by clicking the link on this page, or you can get a hard copy at the bridge club. Completed forms should be turned in at the club desk.
