If you want in, please go and join the group. Note the b.net channel and use the vent.
I'm attempting to setup a practice group for SC2. The purpose of the group is to have set practice sessions (1 / week for 2 hours). The group would be composed of a collection of players that want to improve and some players that are strong enough to instruct.
The plan is to have 1-2 instructors and 4-6 students. The students take turns having 1 on 1s while they are critiqued by the instructors. Two students would play while 2-4 students watch. The students take turns between playing and observing.
This structure is inspired by the L2P DoW2 community. I found this environment extremely helpful when I was learning to play DoW2.
Note: I have a tentative practice and meet up time scheduled for this Tuesday. Let me know how this works for people.
Thank you all for the interest and constructive input.

Good luck! I've been a part of many groups and for the most part they just die out when people start getting busy, lose motivation, and sometimes they kinda just disappear for no reason. Here's some general advice
First gather up your people, and make a big skype/vent/etc channel to communicate better.
Secondly, if you can get everyone online on one day, come up with an idea of how long this is going to last minimally. There's probably some people who can do this for years, but some people might be like "I can do this once a week until I start school x" or "i'm moving in x" so you can just get a better idea of how things will flow for your future.
Third is something I've never tried, but thought it would be a cool idea: Make a google doc (probably excel type) so people can update time slots for when they can be available. If someone has to be gone for practice because of a birthday or something, they can write it in, and people can know. In general, you can use this to know when to schedule practice as well.
