NCTTA Coaching Committee: Logan Zimmerman, Willy Leparulo and Dr. Alan Chu are on a bold mission to educate and certify as many coaches as possible into the world of college table tennis.
NCTTA's coaching certification has brought together coaches from all over the nation with on and off-the-table knowledge, skills and tricks of the trade! Currently there are 25 certified college table tennis coaches in North America! The coaching seminars are sponsored by ISET who has been a great supporter of these programs.
Two more classes will be scheduled this summer and potentially a third one in the Fall semester.
First, an NCTTA certification class is going to be in Tallahassee, Florida at the home of the Florida State University Seminoles at the Bobby E Leach Recreation Center on July 27th and 28th! Tallahassee is home to both Willy Leparulo and Logan Zimmerman (NCTTA Course Conductors).
Register here for this certification class at Florida State University, July 27-28th.

Who’s that cutie in the stroller,
Smiling, tongue is sticking out
None other than Mia Leparulo,
I’ll tell you what she’s all about.
She came to Greensboro with her parents,
And while they are hard at work,
Her duty is to win hearts over,
And from tasks she does not shirk.
All who see her want to hold her,
She, the youngest VIP,
How she feels of important status,
Ask mom who translates her speech.
“Very honored very special,
And all [is so ] well deserved.
Since I’m … only baby in… volunteer group.”
I think the TT fam’ly concurs.
Her Mom’s registration coordinator,
Dad is wearer of several hats,
Both strive to make tournament greater,
And with inclusion of Mia they do that.
Mia’s goal is simple: make all happy,
Even for her stressed out dad
2 month Mia Leparulo’s
The best addition we’ve ever had.
