30 years ago, the villagers of KOHPANYEE decided to make their football dream come true.
They built a floating football pitch on the sea to practice their skills and became a successfull football team in Thailand.
As this type of life-changing stories totally fit to the SPIRIT of LET'S PLAY ASSOCIATION, we decided to pay them a visit...
In november 2014, a team of 3 LET'S PLAY coaches travelled to KohPanyee to bring some football goods and organize a football training session for the kids of KohPanyee school.
The training session was organized on the same principles as youngsters would train in a European football academy.
Everyone had great fun and LET'S PLAY ASSOCIATION is now planning to organize a Coaching Clininc in KohPanyee to help the community develop the players and coaches of tomorrow...
Some key numbers of this first experience point out:
- 22 children aged 8 to 12 participated in this football training session
- 3 French coaches, 1 Thai translator
- 22 football shirts, shorts and socks offered by Geispolsheim FC to the local school
- 7 balls and 45 shirts donated to the kids of KohPanyee
