Territories coming closer together
The Yukon and the Northwest Territories came together in Whitehorse to discuss the continued future of Table Tennis in the North.
It all started with NWT Coach Thor Gohl, Yukon Coach Kevin Murphy and Aerobic Table Tennis's Steve Rowe working together to give a total of seven Table Tennis Clinics in just one week. This included the Territorial Team, as well as three schools in Whitehorse. With Aerobic Table Tennis being the main focus, there was a lot of excitement and joy in the faces of the children and youth. Over 1,000 students played, bringing them closer to the sport of Table Tennis, and having fun as they engaged in the physical activities.
"We are small, but we are take the opportunities and possibilities that we have. Sometimes you have to think outside the box, and that is what we are doing here, trying to bring in programs like Aerobic Table Tennis and getting kids moving in a fun activity. A bonus is they are exposed to our sport and will maybe take it on. WIN WIN" Thor says with a smile.
Steve adds, "It's always great to see the kids smiling, and more important huge territories coming together for a common goal. What an amazing week it has been!"
