Table tennis coaches get training

Coaches gets training

Table Tennis Coaches have had two hectic days of training at the St. Gerard’s Hall, with International Table Tennis Federation (I.T.T.F) Coach Arif Khan.

The enthusiasm  shown by the coaches so far have given the Dominica Table Tennis Association the added incentive to try to provide as much support as possible, involving  all available stake holders, to try to use Table Tennis as additional option to occupy positively the youths on the island, starting at the primary schools.

The 20 coaches at the training represent youth sports officers, Sports Officers, teachers from the Pierre Charles Secondary School, Portsmouth Secondary School, North Eastern Comprehensive School, Convent High School and Community Leaders from Bellevue, Vieille Case and Marigot.

The course for coaches end on Saturday.

National players and prospective players will benefit from the knowledge of Coach Khan from Monday to Friday of next week.

The coach Khan leaves island on Saturday December 17.
