Women’s Go Training League Launched

Monday May 25, 2015

The Celerity Go League is a brand-new women’s go training league hosted on the KGS Go Server . Founder Peggy Yang had “a light-bulb 2015.05.25_celerity-league-peggyandwhitneymoment” at the recent San Diego Go Championship when it occurred to her that female go players “should all get together to play more games, encourage each other, and spend more time together!” On the first of each month, members will be paired together, encouraged to study go and assigned a mentor teacher for that month. Members and teachers will then gather together at the end of the month to discuss their methods of study, share what they have learned, and talk about how to grow further. Membership is free and female players of all ranks are welcome. “Let’s all have fun and improve together!” says Yang. Celerity, by the way, means “swiftness of movement.” Find the club under Social Rooms on KGS and on Facebook.
