Hi Donors, 
I'm Samson Dubina, founder and CEO of the Samson Dubina Educational Table Tennis Academy, Inc.  
When I was 12 years old, a received a flier in the mail about a free table tennis lesson from a local church.  After attending some weekly sessions, I was introduced to the Canton Table Tennis club at the local YWCA.  From age 12-21, I played once a week at the club and also met up with friends throughout the week and practiced.  Lack of proper coaching and training, hindered my development as a player.  When I was in my 20's, I received some professional training.  There were many many opportunities that I missed out on during my younger years.  I don't want that to happen to you!!!  Our team of expert coaches and practice partners here at the Samson Dubina Educational TT Academy want to give you the best training experience possible!  In 2022, we established the first academy in North American that has professional group training twice daily!  The expense of taking care of locals and visiting players, the expense of running the Ohio Mega Camps, the expense of operating a full-time 15,000 sq. ft facility with full staff is more than we can afford.  That is the reason that we value and appreciate your yearly donations!  The only way that we can stay open and committed to help you reach your goals is by your annual support!  This year, we need to raise $80,000.  Thanks in advance for your generosity!
