After a successful first attempt as Victorian Team Senior Manager last year, MSTT Player & Coach David Powell has been chosen to be Manager of both the Victorian Senior and Junior Teams for this year's Australian Championships.
Table Tennis Victora (TTV) is taking a bold new appoach by choosing an Elite Player to Manage its Teams, a position only reserved for parents or TTV officials in the past.
David has quickly developed the skills to become a quality manager as last year he was also Team Manager of the Oceania Cadet Team that participated at World Cadet Challenge in Barbados.
David will provide great inspiration for the Junior Teams. He will be someone the players can look up to and ask for advise to help achieve the desired goals for the Championships. Once the Junior Teams are confirmed later in the year, David will organise & conduct 2 training sessions to help assist with preparations for the National Championships.
