Bright Spot presentations at NWTRPA and Youth Centre Conference

TT NORTH No Comment
Table Tennis North took part in the NWTRPA and Youth Centres’ Conference in Inuvik, September 28th, 2017.
“We love being part of events like this” says Thorsten Gohl, who was sharing information about the growth and excitement of Table Tennis joining the North Sports Association and presenting “Table Tennis for Elders program” at the Bright Spot session of the conference. It’s a program that the Territorial Sport Organization has been hosting since 2016. The Bright Spot Presentations are about things that organizations and communities are doing well, celebrating innovation and success!
Thorsten was definitely excited about this, “This is my first time in Inuvik!! It is so great coming together with communities all over the North!! Sport events are supported by the communities and we are also here to support the communities of the North. We have the similar ideas and definitely the same goals; participation, health, growth, fun and showcasing the communities!! we are a sport that is not competing with other sports, but complimenting them, helping create role models, bringing youth and elders together, bringing our communities together and having alot of fun while doing it.”
The NWTRPA was pleased to host Table Tennis North to present at our Bright Spot plenary at this year’s conference in Inuvik. The Bright Spots session focused our attention to how organizations and communities are making a difference in NWT communities, how they got their start, and tips for success. Table Tennis North showcased how their programs are building connections in our communities, building confidence in our youth, and allowing for lots of fun!
