FOOTBALL TRAINING AT THANYAPURA
Thanyapura’s Football Academy, managed by Phuket Soccer Schools, aims to develop players through individual skills practices, fun challenges and small-sided games (SSG’s). We use a structured syllabus and offers programs specific to each age group and each ability level.
Our Coaching Program focuses on fun, fitness and learning through co-curricular/after-school sessions, etc. Boys and girls of all abilities can join any of the classes catering to their age group.

Martin Hill is a professionally qualified coach who holds both FA and National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) advanced qualifications.

He therefore established Phuket Soccer Schools, with an emphasis on players learning through discovery and small-sided games.
PHUKET SOCCER SCHOOLS 1-ON-1 PROGRAM
It is no secret that practice makes perfect. Our individual or small group private training sessions will help accelerate a player’s improvement faster than regular sessions. Our coaches will extend our specialist training for players who want to improve their technique, skill, fitness or tactical side of the game. Private training can help with players’ confidence and enjoyment of the game. Every player has specific areas of their game that needs work.
Our 1-on-1 program offers the perfect environment to identify and develop these areas with use of our professional equipment and our experienced and FA/NSCAA qualified coaches. Sessions are available for 30 minute or 60 minutes. Areas that can be covered in PSS’s private training include, but are not limited to:
- 1v1 situations
- Ball control
- Ball familiarisation
- Improving the weaker foot
- Running with the ball
- Speed, agility and quickness
