2 times Arctic Winter Games Athletes to teach at Deh Gah School

TT NORTH 3,491 comments

2016 Arctic Winter Games, and Grade 12 Graduation have been exciting events in Athlete Mikaela Vandell’s year. Also exciting that she is back at school, having just received her Certificate a few weeks ago. Why? To study more? To upgrade courses?  All wrong guesses! Mikaela, who also participated in the 2014 Arctic Winter Games, is back to inspire and teach the kids at Deh Gah School Table Tennis! She brings her years of experience from practice and competitions into the class to share her wisdom and enthusiasm for the sport.

“White Rabbit” she calls out and the kids now know it is the signal to hold up your racket. Or as she shows the right hand grip -” what is this called again?” “Yes, you got it, the shake hand grip. Good job everyone!”

The 17 year old Mikaela will be with classes from Grades 4 to 9 for the entire week. Can you see all the smiles that brings? Thanks for sharing your skills and fun and coming back to Deh Gah! Great to see you here!

Fort Providence is taking off with Table Tennis this week.

The first day of Table Tennis is concluded. Today the kids learned a bit about the service in Table Tennis. First a nice warm up with “Flush Tag” and then an obstacle course on 4 tables to learn the basics about Table Tennis.

Frog Games, Targets and Table Tennis Cricket were all part of this fun day! And of course a lot of smiles!!!

Legacy of the 2018 South Slave Arctic Winter Games has began.
