Young Lions Tournament


Started on a whim by deposed President Mallory 4-dan LS, the Young Lions' Tournament is a premier youth title tournament for the new generation of go players to earn their first titles. Youth players from the United States, Canada, and South America will earn the right to battle for glory. But this road is full of pitfalls and dangers. Who will emerge as the leader of the Pride? Check out the full coverage of the 2016 event to see who earns the right to be in the Pride.

Volunteers Needed!

This tournament cannot run without your help. We need people to help with officiating, reporting results, and getting donations so that the AGHS can continue to put on cool programming like this.
