Participants from all over Thailand were invited to train twice daily under the watchful eye of Thai High Performance Elite Coach Korakij Sermkitseree. while Parinya Nonsakate was on site to assist with training as well as other coaches from Thailand National Team and 10 coaches from the first ATTU “Aim for the Stars” project being the TTAT Level 2 Coaching Course as the next step and to put what they have learnt into practice.
The camp was targeted at players of high level and with different ages. Some players and coaches attended between the second week of the project , some were preparing for the tournaments in Thailand, and others again for the Thailand Youth Qualification tournament.
Korakij Sermkitseree said:
“Despite some initial challenges in managing the expectations of widely differing ages, overall we delivered good work. The concept of the camp was to understand the players’ needs, and we were successful also thanks to the cooperation with the coaches”.
The Table Tennis Association of Thailand would like to thank ATTU “Aim for the Stars” for their support throughout this training project as well as the earlier coach education and Parinya Nonsakate for his precious assistance.
