The cartoon booklet "Go An Introduction", where the Chess pieces learn to play from the Go stones, has been reissued. The new version uses pass stones at the end of the game just like in the UK Go Challenge and other tournaments. It also corrects the spelling error "altohether"!

You can see the online version or the PDF version or ask us to send your Go group some of the new printed ones.

Following on from the success of the European Youth Go Championship 2014 held in the UK, the British Go Association is forming a youth squad which is aiming to send a UK national team to the 2015 youth championships to be held in the Netherlands.

The Leader of the Youth Squad will be Alison Bexfield, 2 dan.

The youth squad is for any junior who will be under 16 on 31 August 2014 and who has progressed past the beginner stage (40 kyu -31 kyu) to reach at least novice stage (30 kyu and stronger). We will be running coaching events and encouraging participation at youth tournaments in the UK to develop the playing ability of squad members in a fun environment.

To reach the standard required to play for the UK in the European championships players will need to reach a minimum of 20 kyu or stronger for those aged up to 16. We will recommend which players we believe have made this standard in advance of the event.
