To Townsville Table Tennis Association
North Ward, 19. August 2008.
We, Paul Jones and Terry Dahl, are very concerned for the coaching
situation at the TTTA - especially with a view to the players that
are keen on reaching higher level in their sport.
We would therefore like to present a plan on how to help - and attached
is the sketch on our ideas. Our goal is, in short, to establish
an academy to provide an opportunity for the table tennis players
to achieve their maximum potential. We would like to call it: Table
Tennis Academy North Queensland.
The initial set-up of Table Tennis Academy North Queensland:
We suggest that the Table Tennis Academy North Queensland is approved
by the TTTA at the meeting on 21. August 2008, as sketched and with
an immediately start.
We suggest that the sub-committee, the Academy-committee, shall
consist of the following members: Terry Dahl, Paul Jones and Steven
Fielding. Dahl and Jones in the capacity as the Academy-coaches
and Fielding as a member of the TTTA-managament committee.
The Academy will be run as an addition to existing weekly coaching
programs and private coaching - and as a start as a clinic on Sundays.
Invitation to players will be made and handed/send out.
We suggest that the Academy can use tables in TTTA-venue. To make
the expenses less for the players we would like to suggest that
the Academy can use the venue and an agreed number of tables free
of costs. We would like to suggest a use of up to five tables.
The costs of participating in high-level academies in other sports
are quite high but we are hoping to keep the fees reasonably low
- like 20 dollars for a Sunday-clinic of 2x1,5 hrs.
We are mainly aiming to help the TTTA-players, but we would sometimes
also like to invite keen players from other associations/clubs in
North Queensland. They will have to pay a TTTA membership fee.
We hope that you find that our suggestion will be beneficial to
TTTA, and that we can get a positive "go-ahead!".
