This project focuses on the challenges and opportunities that bridge organisations face. In partnership with the Scottish Bridge Union, BAMSA has conducted research on National Bridge Organisations’ (NBO) experiences of training and developing international and junior players. The aim was to explore what works well, and the difficulties and solutions faced by different countries.
Furthermore, drawing on interview data from top players, we complied a report on the roles of NPCs and coaches as well as advice for aspiring players. BAMSA has also carried out a player survey on their experiences of training and development. The series of reports are designed to enable NBOs and players to reflect on best practice in relation to the training, support and development of international players.
