Sepak takraw team get kick out of coaching

The Myanmar Sepak Takraw Federation has sent over two coaches to help train the Cambodian national team ahead of participation at the 27th SEA Games at the end of the year, as well as the upcoming 28th King’s Cup Sepak Takraw World Championships, which is being held at the Udon Thani Central Plaza Convention Hall in Thailand from September 16 to 22.

The coaches began training sessions for the 16-strong squad at the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia headquarters yesterday and will stick with players until halfway through the King’s Cup.

Chhoeun Leng, director of the NOCC’s administration department and general secretary of the Cambodian Sepak Takraw Federaton, told the Post: “The Myanmar Sepak Takraw Federation have offered one female and one male coach to instruct the Cambodian national team in order to lay groundwork for a gold medal [at the SEA Games].

After they complete their mission in Cambodia [and Thailand], the coaches will continue to coach the Cambodians further in Myanmar from October 1 to November 9.” The Cambodian players are also being offered the chance to learn the Burmese traditional sport of chinlone, which uses the same rattan ball and requires similar ball juggling skills and is making its SEA Games debut this year.
