BSS Arena 10 Development vs. Infinito Soccer Schools

On Saturday 4th February, our development sessions at Arena 10 took part in friendly matches against Infinito soccer schools. 


This was a great opportunity for the young development players to experience being part of a team and allowing them to use the techniques and skills they have been acquiring, in a match-like situation. 


Age appropriate formats of 3v3, 5v5 and 6v6 meant players had the opportunity to make lots of decisions in a friendly, yet competitive, match environment.  

Our Saturday morning Arena 10 classes train on a weekly basis and have groups from children born in 2011 up to those born in 2004. Players develop new techniques and skills in a fun yet challenging environment. Techniques and skills they put into practice in weekly skill, conditioned and small sided games, and during monthly friendly matches against outside opposition.


We would like to give a big thank you to Infinito Soccer Schools for joining us this month and creating the match opportunity for the young players.

Coach Dang’s UK Trip with Chang and Everton FC

Recently, Chang Beer hosted an Everton Football Club Junior Cup U13 competition in Thailand with 24 Thai youth teams taking part. The competition is an annual tournament with full support from the Academy Program at Everton FC, the objective being to boost both development of youth players and coaches in Thailand. The winners of the competition receive an all expenses paid trip to the UK from sponsors Chang (Thai Beverage PLC).

During the trip to the UK, the traveling team, and Dang, visited Manchester, Liverpool, and London, both playing and watching football. Training sessions were held with Everton's academy staff at their training ground, Finch Farm, and friendly fixtures played against academy teams from Liverpool, Everton, Hudersfield Town and Crystal Palace.

As one of Chang's two main coaching instructors and clinicians Coach Dang's role was similar to those he serves at domestic level; overseeing the technical and theory transfer, and acting as the coaching link between the Everton academy staff and Thai staff.

This is the second year that Dang has been afforded such a role and he views the position as 'a great honor' and 'privilege'.

Before leaving Dang said that 'the excitement towards learning from, and picking brains with my UK counterparts is any coach's wishful thoughts and ambitions. However, being able to come back and apply such knowledge to our Bangkok Soccer School players would be the ultimate treat'.

JSSL Singapore International Tournament 2014

The JSSL Singapore tournament is fast becoming the biggest tournament that is held within Asia and this years competition had over 120 teams competing in it. In each age group that we participated in there were 20 teams competing for the title of Asia best team.

Please see the below results for each age group:

Under 9's
Our Under 9's finished second in their group and so made it through to the cup competition but couldn't quite make it out of the tough cup group on the second day.

Under 11's
Despite having a young team we won our group on the first day and made it to through to the semifinal of the cup before being beaten by an own goal and a last minute breakaway goal to the eventual winners, so we finished 4th place in the cup competition.

Under 13's
The Under 13’s finished second in their group on the first day and so were also through to the cup competition.  On the second day we made it through to the semifinal but were beaten, going out in the 3 v 3 to the eventual winners despite having dominant play throughout.

Under 15's
The Under 15’s finished second in their group on the first day and were crowned CHAMPIONS on the second day, retaining their crown playing great football over the course of the tournament.  

For all our teams to get through to the cup competition was a fantastic achievement in itself.  This was further back up by BSS as an Academy coming third in the Paul Parker competition which awards points for how far each of the Academy gets within the Cup competition.  Considering we only entered four teams whilst those Academies that finished above us all had teams in every age group show how well our players did. 

Please click the link HERE to be redirected to our Facebook page to see a collection of photos from the tournament.

We look forward to entering this tournament again next year and we hope to take more of our teams along.

Grand Soccer Pro Invitation Cup

For two Sunday’s in May our Academy teams took part in the Grand Soccer Pro Invitation cup.

Each age group was contested between the best local Soccer Academies and the format took the form of a round robin with the top two teams playing a final to decide the eventual champions.


On Sunday the 18th May the Under 8’s, 10’s and 12’s each competed in the tournament.  Our Under 12’s came second in the group but were unable to win the final match and finished runners up.  In the Under 8’s and Under 10’s our teams finished as champions dominating the tournament from start to finish.


On Sunday the 25th May the Under 9's, Under 11's and Under 13's participated in the Invitation Cup. With our teams strong favourites in this tournament we simply were not able to play at our best.  The Under 11’s eventually came forth; the Under 13’s finished second, but our Under Under 9’s performed fantastically despite missing players and finished as Champions.


Well done to all players that participated.  It was great to see such a high standard of play throughout the two days and to see our team compete against such quality opposition.


Academy Under 14’s Winners at the JSSL Singapore 7’s international Tournament

Our Under 14’s, without a recognized goalkeeper and playing some strong teams from around the region, dominated the tournament on both days without conceding a single goal. The team progressed to the cup competition after the first day and made it through to the Cup knock out stage. In both the semifinal and final, with both games being against teams expecting to win the tournament, the evenly contested games finished 0-0. In both the semifinal and the final the matches went to the 3 v 3 extra time format. In the semifinal the game went back and forth before the Under 14’s won possession and captain Soichiro scored with a breakaway goal. In the final itself, despite the game once again going to 2 v 2 play continued for some time before once again our captain and player of the tournament Soichiro won the ball and scored on the counter attack.

 

Our Under 10’s started brightly on the first day in a very tough group that included the eventual winners of the age group. The team won their opening three games before a 1-0 defeat to JSSL Arsenal Wilshere. Going through to the Cup competition the Under 10’s were confident they could improve on the first days results but after dominating in their first match lost 1-0 to a breakaway goal that was the last kick of the day. This coupled with the increasing heat and not having any subs, saw the team play well but unable to get the results they wanted in order to get through to the knock out stage. A big well done to all players that before this tournament had not played together as a team, as the change in age cutoff date meant that the team consisted of players from 3 different Academy teams and from 2 different age groups.


Well done to all players for a great tournament.


Team Program starts with a BANG !!

The first weekend of term 3 saw a successful beginning to our new BSS Team Program.  This new program consisted of teams made up from players from our sessions at Arena 10 and Crystal Football Club.

Open Venue course at ISB school

Our new 13 week soccer course began at ISB school on Monday 10th September and is running until Friday 13th December.


Our training will consist of repetition of core skills to ensure students experience accelerated learning. We then use small sided conditioned games to practice these core skills and to enable the child to gain maximum time on the ball in game like situations, developing appropriate decision making abilities. All sessions end with small sided matches.


The schedule and age groups we have are as follows:


Day Time  
Monday 4pm – 5pm: BSS mini for 5 year olds | 5pm – 6.30pm: 6 – 8 years old | 5pm – 6.30pm: 9+ years old Field E
Tuesday 5pm – 6.30pm: 6 – 8 years old | 5pm – 6.30pm: 9+ years old Artificial Pitch
Wednesday 5pm – 6.30pm: 8 – 10 years old | 5pm – 6.30pm: 10 – 12 years old Field A
Thursday 5pm – 6.30pm 6 – 8 years old | 5pm – 6.30pm 8 - 10 years old Artificial pitch

All students should wear shin pads.


There will be 1 coach per class and class sizes will be limited to 16 children (12 for BSS Mini).


We do still have space available if you would like your child to join.

BSS Bangkok visit to the West Ham Academy in England

In August 2012 selected players travelled to London, England to be coached by the famous West Ham United Academy. The West Ham Academy is one of the most respected Academies in world football which has a long history and reputation for bringing through players to play professionally.


This trip was over 7 days and included a structured training schedule and matches, where all players did very well. Accommodation was provided next to the Olympic Stadium. Training took place at the Leyton Orient training ground. In addition we also went to see West Ham United play in a premiership game of football, various stadiums tours (including the Arsenal Emirates stadium and West Ham United’s Boleyn ground in Upton Park. The players also had a sightseeing day where they took an open top sightseeing bus tour around and through Central London and take a trip on the famous London Eye.


Our last game in this tour vs West Ham United Academy U13/14 ended with 3-2 to West Ham. Throughout the entire 80 minutes, BSS boys worked their hardest, helped each other with their best ability they can, and enjoyed the unforgettable moment. BSS are very proud of all of our boys. Big well-done to everyone!

This really was a fantastic experience for the select few players who went.
