Junior Leadership Award
Table Tennis the Way You Like It
Our new Junior Leadership Award is especially for those those in Year 8 or 9 who either
attend one of our after school or satellite clubs.
Our Junior Table Tennis Leadership Award will help you to develop some valuable
leadership skills which will prove valuable in later life, as well as developing your skills
and knowledge if the sport.
The Award involves completing a number of activities which you can do in your own
time during sessions and at home. There is no time limit to complete the activities apart
from the age factor. If all activities are not completed by the end of year 9 a grace period
will be granted.
Like most sports , Table Tennis consists of a number of opportunities including coaching,
officiating such as being an umpire or referee, organisng events such as tournaments as
well as sports development.
During your course you will experience all these aspects of the sport through the tasks
given to you. You may well find the experience of taking the award useful if you decide
to take GCSE PE as an option and table tennis as one of your individual sports.
Once you have completed the award you will become an official Table Tennis Rother
Other awards can be taken after this course, depending on your age at the time, such as
the Table Tennis Networker Award, Young Officials Award and perhaps ,once you have
reached 16, you might consider taking the UKCC Level 1 in Table Tennis Coaching
Qualification and joining our coaching team.
