Student of the Month

Congrats to Aiden Norin

Student of the Month - Aiden Norin
At the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy, we feel that success can be measured by more than just the scoreboard.  Last week at the Spin & Smash Open in Columbus, Aiden Norin had an unbelievable performance.  What is his rating?  Who did he beat?  Don't ask me that, I'm not even sure about it myself.  But what I do know is that he worked to implement the things that he had been learning in lessons and practicing throughout the month.  Even though he made many mistakes, he did his best to try to use his forehand and backhand loops.  Honestly, he reminds me of myself when I was 13.  I tried to play right (even though it was often so wrong) and eventually things started hitting.
When the shots are developing, it is important to be patient and persistent.  Patient with yourself when they are developing.  Persistent at trying your new skills until they fully develop!
Great work Aiden!  You have a bright future ahead!
