Dehcho & Delta Ping Pong Tour

Dehcho & Delta Ping Pong Tour

TT NORTH No Comment

We took the time to run a big outreach program in the Dehcho & Beaufort Delta region of the Northwest Territories. Visiting 7 communities in a three weeks period and providing National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) coaching sessions as well as Elders & Table Tennis and Community Table Tennis programming. We also provided communities with five professional Table Tennis tables and four youth sized tables.

The goal was to build capacity in the communities, provide equipment and have some fun playing Table Tennis. We trained a total of seven Community Coaches and certified one Introduction to Competition Coach throughout our travels. And we took advantage of this amazing opportunity to introduce ourselves and build a connection with the schools and recreation departments of the communities.

Now it is up to us to continue the support and communicate directly to our new trained coaches and to those we connected with. Our goal is to continue the relationship virtually and planning more trips to the communities in the near future. Trying to get as many youth involved as possible in preparation for the 2023 Canada Winter Games and the 2023 Arctic Winter Games.

A huge thank you to the GNWT’s Municipality and Community Affairs as well as Sport Canada in making this project happen. Without amazing partners this would not be possible.

There are now weekly Table Tennis sessions in most communities and we are looking forward in what the future will bring. If you like us to connect with one of the coaches in the community, learn more about Table Tennis or would like to know when and where to play, let us know and send us an e-mail info@tabletennisnorth.ca.
