Understanding Player Development
Player development is not a straight line. Each player develops at a different rate – the key is to help every player, regardless of current ability, create good habits on and off the field that will help them achieve improved performance while enjoying football.
At Thanyapura, we’re focused on long term improvement over short term gain.

“Children, whether they are younger or older, beginners or very talented, are not ‘mini adults’. Each individual has different needs, so creating coaching activities that engage all players to learn and want to keep improving is key.”
“The question to ask youth players and teams is not how many trophies they have won, but rather, do they enjoy their football and how much improvement have they shown?”

I will be playing a once in a lifetime opportunity match at Liverpool FC's Anfield stadium soon.
I have not played competitive football for over a decade and went to Thanyapura and met STEVE, the football head coach, to prepare for the game.
We had 2 sessions a day. His one to one methods were phenomenal. They were tough, but not exhausting and a lot of time was spent on technique and coaching to a level and detail I have never received before.
Steve’s coaching methods were brilliant with world class facilities and in a sporting environment which is not rivaled anywhere else in Asia. I wish I had met him 20 years ago!
