Silicon Valley Youth Bridge

2020 Youth NABC Sponsorships

Montreal NABC Has Been Cancelled

July 23-25. 2020
Montreal, Canada


Benefits of Attending

  • A way to meet and form relationships with other aspiring youth players from around the country
  • An opportunity for improving your bridge skills while playing in a large group of other kids at similar levels
  • A chance to compete for scholarships and other prizes


There is now a waitlist for sponsorships. If you are interested in attending, we still encourage you to apply. There may be cancellations, or additional funding may become available. If no funding opens up, and you are able to attend without the aid of the travel stipend, you are welcome to be part of the SiVY program, including attending coaching sessions.
We're pleased to announce that we can offer more scholarships. Those previously on the waiting list will be guaranteed a sponsorship.
NABC Cancelled so no sponsorships this year.


Training sessions are open to youths that have been accepted into our Sponsorship Program.

The Youth North American Bridge Championships (Youth NABC) is the premier event for aspiring youth bridge players in North America. SiVY Bridge is offering sponsorships that will help aspiring players participate in this year's event. We offer financial support as well as opportunities to meet other players who plan to attend and learn the game with them.

SiVY Bridge sponsorship includes:

To be eligible for the sponsorship, the applicant must:

  1. Be an ACBL member.

  2. Be from District 21.

  3. Be an active participant in Silicon Valley Youth Bridge (e.g. attends events, is in an after school program, and/or participated in summer camp).

  4. Be a youth 20 years of age and under as of June 15, 2020.

  5. Apply for the program before July 5, 2020.

  6. Play at least four of the youth sessions at the Youth NABC.

    • Any player who is unable to play in any YNABC session because they advanced in a NABC or NABC+ event which began prior to the start of YNABC is credited those missed YNABC sessions towards YNABC play requirements.
  7. Provide Silicon Valley Youth Bridge a brief statement, testimonial, or quote after Youth NABC describing their experience.
