Aim of the program
The aim of our kids programs is to provide a positive introduction to the sport of table tennis to the children of our host, BGCBI. We offer programs every Tuesday for an hour. Though the primary focus of our programs is for the kids to have fun, we also support the development of a good foundation for the sport of table tennis through these programs; good eye-hand coordination, basic skills of table tennis, sportsmanship and fondness for the sport.
We provide individual coaching for kids with advanced skills during regular playing times four times a week.
Guidelines for program volunteers
Each child has a different skill level. When we have a child at the table, we should make a quick individual assessment and set a proper goal for his/her level of achievement for that day, building upon fundamentals.
