Team Spirit

Read about the team of five

 
 
 
I don’t really know the Alguetti family.  However, I have seen them, heard them (YES HEARD THEM) and played against them.  The one thing that they have, which I really admire…    is team spirit.  The family of five can out-cheer any team in the US.  Regardless if they are playing a preliminary round or taking down Timothy Wang in the Men’s Singles, they have a fighting attitude and together they are supported by their team of five.
 

Olympic Training

Thank You Message and Video

Dear Table Tennis Community,

I might not be the best player in the US, but I have the best supporters! You! Thank you for believing in me and supporting my Olympic Training through www.gofundme.com/samsondubina. I will work very very hard mentally, physically, strategically, and tactically - together, we can do it. I will continue to post updates as I hire professional practice partners to train with me here in Ohio, travel the country for training, and complete regularly in tournaments all to prepare for the Olympic Trials.

The First Tournament

Learn 2 Major Keys to Winning Your First Tournament!

 
 
 
 
 
 
Old, young, male, female, fat, skinny…  everyone wants to perform well in their first tournament.  For many players the first tournament will be a make or break event.  The first tournament can spark a desire to be the best or can douse the flame of improvement.  When a student of mine is preparing for his first tournament, I try to have him focus on 2 primary elements:  Control and Spin.

What are you Practicing?

Learn why you should play more tournaments!

 
 
What is your ultimate goal in table tennis? 
To make the Olympic Team?
To become the club champion?
To someday break 2000?
To improve your fitness?
To beat your great-uncle Bob?
Most players’ goals involve some type of tournament performance.  As a coach, I must know the goals that my students have and help to guide them in the right direction to meet their goals. 
 
If someone wants to have a good serve, what should they do?  Hmmm…. Maybe practice their serves.
