The Raleigh Bridge Club sponsors a mentoring program that pairs interested players with supportive mentors. The program fosters at-the-table learning, knowledge transfer from mentor to mentee and growth in confidence for the mentee. Details of the program:
- The program is open to dues-paying members of the RBC.
- Mentors (Life Masters) are paired with Mentees (Non-Life Masters) for one calendar year.
- Regular life master/non-life master partnerships are discouraged on mentoring nights
- Occasionally a mentor/mentee pair will exist for a second year if the first year has included unusual circumstances and if both players are agreeable.
- Pairs who are both non life masters may play on mentoring nights.
- Pairs who are both life masters may not play on mentoring nights.
- The 5th Tuesday and 5th Thursday of each month are designated as mentoring games. Mentoring pairs play in each scheduled mentoring game or schedule a make-up game.
- There are 8 mentor/mentee games in 2018: January 30, March 29, May 29, May 31 (mentoring Swiss Teams), July 31, August 30, October 30, and November 29
- Mentees pay a $10 fee and mentors pay $5 at mentoring games.
- Mentoring games are stratified.
- Pairs may play SAYC, Standard American or 2/1.
