Southern Table Tennis will run a junior coaching program on Tuesday nights during all school terms for the year 2018. We will also be running junior team based competitions in Terms 2 and 4 which will run alongside the coaching program on Tuesday nights. There will also be one off occasional competitions against other clubs and we will be encouraging players to enter TTSA and affiliate junior tournaments. Junior players are also welcome to participate in any other activities conducted by Southern Table Tennis, including the main competition on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
The Junior Coaching Program
The junior coaching program is held on Tuesday nights during all school terms. There are two session times being between 6 pm to 7 pm and from 7 pm to 8.30 pm. There is some flexibility for which session you can take part in but in general we are looking for younger children and beginners to participate in the earlier sessions. The sessions are held at our 11 table stadium which is on States Rd, MORPHETT VALE. These sessions are a fun introduction to table tennis using a combination of free play, coaching and assorted games. They are suitable for children over 8 years old and of all standards. We offer one come and try session for free and if a child wishes to keep on playing we charge a onetime $30 administration fee and the child then receives their own bat. The cost is then $5 per session and you may use the primary school ‘Sports Voucher’ system to pay for a complete term.
Junior Team Competition Term 2 and 4
We will be running two junior competitions this year, one in term 2 and another in term 4. The competitions will take place on Tuesday nights between 7.00 pm and about 8.30 pm and requires players to register as individuals. We will then form teams of equal ability from the nominations received. Players will get to play at least 2 singles and 1 doubles match each night. All matches are played at Southern Table Tennis and the competition is suitable for players of all abilities. The cost is $50 for the term for players who have previously paid the administration fee. Primary school children may use the school voucher system to pay for the competition. To nominate for a competition send your name, age, address, parents/guardian name and your contact details to Marcel on 0417 870 181 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
