Junior Development Overview:

The opportunity exists for junior players to participate in a skill building, fun, Tuesday Night Junior Program, or take the next step to advanced group and individual coaching with the aim of State Team selection.  While hundreds of children have enjoyed Southern's junior program over the years, quite a few have also decided to escalate their training and involvement and achieve State Team selection, and in some cases go on to represent Australia.

Southern Table Tennis is both a Sports Voucher provider and a Sporting Schools registered provider. Primary school students can gain excellent value in using their $100 Sports Voucher and obtain a school term free coaching, table tennis bat & covers and a Club polo top. Southern's accredited coaches have already delivered Sporting Schools coaching programs to some 25 Primary schools and are available to accommodate any future school coaching requests.
