Saturday 29th June marks a very special day for the HiTT Academy and St Albert The Great College as the Academy launches a program entitled ‘ Schools of excellence in Sport ‘ which sees a collaborative program in action. This initiative that is the brain child of technical director Mario Genovese is a program with a special bearing towards developing a close bond within the school’s table tennis students. The agreement extends to furnishing high tech table tennis equipment within the school, coaching and training programs for the students, nurturing talent for competition, talent identification, players program integration and also psychological preparation for competitive play.
HiTT Academy has been aggressively undergoing a massive build up towards maintaining the highest professional standards, amongst which is the investment of the services of four foreign coaches in the initial six months of operation, co-operation programs with five major foreign clubs, sponsored visits by top level foreign players for sparring and International camps. Mario Genovese went on to say ‘ This is only the beginning as we strive to bring closer the ideas that were in operation during my years of playing professionally in Scandinavia to HiTT Malta’
To celebrate this historic step HiTT is organising an Open Day this Saturday 29th June for all table tennis enthusiasts at St Albert’s College gym between 09:00 and 14:00 ( entrance through Old Theatre street ) where one can obtain details for all the forthcoming table tennis activities. A tournament will be held for all levels of HiTT students together with fun games for the very young mini cadets 6-10 years in the able hands of ITTF coach Katia Mifsud.
Summer training will commence on the 3rd July with sessions held daily morning and evening during the summer months with top foreign coaches. For further information visit HiTT Academy on facebook or call 79591799 or email [email protected]
