The Canada Winter Games from PEI
Table Tennis Coverage
The BC Junior Table Tennis Team squad has spent months preparing for the Canada Winter Games. It started with intensive training, which included competitions, and culminated ultimately with a team selection where two boys and two girls we sent off to PEI represent the province. The girl’s team consists of Sofia Li and Louise Fan, while the boys team consists of David Mandelstam and Zonggang Li. They are accompanied by team manager Ivy Liao and coaches Andre Ho and Zoia Novikova. We are looking forward to watching our BC table tennis athletes compete live at the games through the Canada Winter Games viewing portal. Here Canadians can watch live events representing all of the various sports over the course of the two weeks of competition.

Table Tennis Technical Package
Technical Packages are a critical part of the Canada Games. They guide the selection of athletes by prescribing the age and eligibility requirements, assist the Host Society by detailing competition formats and scoring procedures, assist Provincial/Territorial (P/T) Chefs de Mission in verifying eligibility, help with budgeting by describing the number of participants permitted, advance coach certification by stating minimum requirements, and generally contribute to athlete development by identifying each National Sport Organization’s (NSO) version of athletes in the “Train to Compete” phase of its Long Term Development (LTD) model, or other suitable phase of LTD as justified by the NSO.
