About Team TITZ

 The Team was created to develop junior players with a focus to promote sportsmanship, competition, respect, and a passion for the sport of table tennis.  Coach Herbert's training approach tries to develop the individual player's fundamentals to provide a solid foundation for a player's individual goal.  By developing an individual's table tennis skills (e.g. forehand/backhand loop, blocks, footwork, body position, flips, serves, etc), the player will have a firm foundation to achieve higher level goals.  Once these skillsets have been developed to a level of being natural and instinctive, the next phase for the individual will be to learn tournament strategy and be competitive.  While the student becomes comfortable with the sport of Table Tennis, and develops a competitive edge in tournaments, Coach Herbert further identifies the student's weaknesses/strengths/limitations and provides target training for the individual.  This involves the development of the mental portion of the game, while still providing the technical strength needed for a person to overcome the player's perceived weaknesses.  In addtion to target training, the competitive-level student will be offered the opportunity to train with some of the Nations Top Players - like Coach Lu with his rating as high as 2409 in 2012.  With this training approach delivered to Team TITZ members, the players have been fairly successful sporting to various USATT sanctioned tournaments and obtaining top-level achievements within their individual ranking events.
The vision to promote and build a competitive Junior Table Tennis Team was one of Coach Herbert's many goals long before he was invited to become the Table Tennis coach for the Irvine Chinese School at the South Coast Chinese Cultural Center in 2006.  Since this time, Herbert has positioned many members to be competitive while still promoting the passion for the sport.

Since Sept. 2006, Coach Herbert has not only devoted many hours in developing the Junior Table Tennis Program, volunteering to support the SCCCA Table Tennis Club, but has also spent many hours in supporting the parents to form "Team TITZ".  Several members of Team TITZ (Players) have been competing in USA Table Tennis Organization's sanctioned tournaments and have been fairly successful in the short amount of time training with Coach Herbert.  In addition, while developing and promoting Table Tennis for SCCCA/ICS, Coach Herbert have also provided his experience as a volunteer for many years with the USA Table Tennis Association as a member of their Operations Staff.

About SCCCA/ICS Table Tennis Club

Orange County Ping Pong : SCCCA Table Tennis Club is located at the South Coast Chinese Cultural Center in Irvine California.  Neighboring Orange County communities include: Tustin, Tustin Ranch, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Laguna, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Santa Ana, Garden Grove, Fullerton, Placentia, Yorba Linda, and Anaheim - all in Orange County.  The Center was built and established as a Non-Profit Organization in 2005 to service its members and community’s needs on learning theChinese language and culture.  Fortunately, this vision was extended to provide additional programs like Table Tennis, Marital Arts, Badminton and other activities to build the community in Irvine.
As a result, the Center is now the home to Totally In The Zone or "Team TITZ" - a Competitive Junior Table Tennis Team. 
Many have asked "Where can I play ping pong in Orange County?"  Well, SCCCA is open to the public and everyone is welcome to play.

SCCCA Table Tennis Club Rules

-        Ping Pong Group Lessons Program (Juniors)

-        Private Training Program: This program is structured for players with specific goals, which may require private one-on-one instruction. Lessons are $40.00/hr. and schedules are arranged with the instructor. Please inquire at the Center.

Players train with Private-Instructors for many personal reasons:

o   Learning is inhibited in a group environment.

o   Focused training is required (e.g. Multiball, Serves, 3rd-Ball Attack, Loops, Footwork, Backhand drills, etc.)

o   To identify and develop weak areas of play and develop a strategy to improve the player's strength and correct weaknesses.

o   Exercise for fun and lose weight (one student has lost over 20lbs. in 5 months).
