Once again members of Stoyanstroy lead by Stojan SARIEV and Ani SARIEVA showed great co-operation and full involvement in all organisation details.
Under umbrella of Olympic Solidarity and with great interest of Bulgarian Table Tennis Federation leading by Stefan KITOV the course was successful.
This course was not easy in many aspects, because a lot of variation of technical strokes also because of English language of the Advanced Coaching Manual but the final result was very good: All coaches passed successful. Now they have to complete with 50 hours of practice with 5 hours of supervising to become ITTF accredited coaches.
It was very appreciated the interest and participation in this Course of all coaches, but three of them were make really a lot of efforts to assist this Course:
1. Nino NINOSHVILI was coming from Tbilisi / Georgia; she was a very successful participant on ITTF-PTT Level 1 Course in Tbilisi in 2012
2. Ivo YAKIMOV come from France, where he was player and now working as a coach in Sent-Etien
3. Aneliya KAROVA the current Bulgarian Champion and Senior national team player have to find time between French league matches, was not easy task for her because she combine her coaching work in Panagurishte Table Tennis Center with very active playing career.
The successful ITTF Level 2 Course was followed by High Performance Training camp from 7 – 11 of December in the same hall of Stoyanstroy Table Tennis Centre with participation of 16 young players from 12 -18 years, 8 from them were girls,
The players presented a lot of energy, full attention.
