Raised with Christ

Read the SDTTA Bible Verse of the Week

 
 
 
 
Colossians 3:1-4   If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

During a two minute warm-up there are a few important things that you should be doing…
 
#1 You should remove any distractions.  If there is a barrier too close to the table and needs to be moved, adjust the barriers prior to the first point.  If there are broken balls on the floor or dirt on the table, make sure that you clean the area.

The Mystery Man

NEW Coaching Article - by Samson Dubina

 
The Mystery Man
By Coach Samson Dubina
 
 
In the table tennis world, it is commonly believed that there are 3 types of players – positive, negative, and in-between.
 
Mr. Positive continues to strongly affirm himself throughout the match, even if he is down 8-0 or 10-2 or whatever the score, he has a high level of confidence.
