National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

TT NORTH No Comments

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation gives us the opportunity to recognize and commemorate the intergenerational harm that residential schools have caused to indigenous families and communities. It aims to honour those who have been affected by this injustice, celebrate resilience and affirm a commitment that every child matters.

“Every Child Matters” is a significant initiative that emphasizes the importance of the holistic well-being of children. It underscores the belief that each child, regardless of their background or circumstances, has the right to grow, learn, and thrive in a safe and nurturing environment. This initiative is a powerful reminder that every child has unique potential and that it is our collective responsibility to ensure they have the opportunities and support to realize it.

Table Tennis North is dedicated to promoting the sport of Table Tennis while also advocating for the well-being and development of youth. We recognize the importance of supporting indigenous youth and providing them with opportunities and possibilities to become the best version of themselves. We believe that Table Tennis is not just a sport, but a platform that can be used to empower and inspire young individuals to reach their full potential. By fostering a sense of belonging and offering mentorship programs, they strive to make a positive impact on the lives of youth, helping them to build confidence, resilience, and a strong sense of community.

Every 30th of September we will wear orange to remember, to reflect and to celebrate resilience. We hope that you all join us.

Aerobic Table Tennis Instructor workshop

TT NORTH No Comments

Our second virtual Aerobic Table Tennis instructor was a huge success. At the end, we were able to give Professional Development points for our participants that will be reflected in their Coaches Association of Canada‘s database (The Locker).

We will have more courses coming in the near future.

The Language of Inclusion

TT NORTH No Comments

As coaches, mentors and role models to others, the language we use and the questions we ask can make or break the quality experiences of the people in our programs.  This session will explore concepts and tools that will help you to speak through an inclusive lens and help you to create quality experiences and inclusive programs for all who participate.  

Mini session from February 17, 2022. Check it out!!!

Ping Pong Literacy

TT NORTH 493 comments

We are excited to have Steve back in the Territories with his new program PING PONG Literacy. It will be great to engage our youth from 3-7 years of age in being Active for Life.

Working together with the Physical Literacy Coordinator Dehcho Divisional Education Council in bringing the programs into the Dehcho Region of the Northwest Territories.

“It will be great bringing Steve into the communities of our Region and introducing our kids to Ping Pong Literacy. Learning numerics and literacy in a fun way while having entertaining brain breaks to support being active for life. It cannot be better than that” says Physical Literacy Coordinator Thorsten Gohl

Steve Rowe adds to this “It’s always exciting to be back in the NWT. The children will learn academics, keep fit and table tennis. I am very much looking forward to delivering this amazing new programme to the children in the Deh Cho area. I can’t wait to see the reaction from the teachers and children.”
