Team Profile Coach Profile
The Thai team and the Thailand Volleyball Association implemented the FIVB development program called the “2001 National Team Project” with the great support of the Petroleum Authority of Thailand since 1979. The selected youth players higher than 175 cm were trained and instructed in Yala, a city in southern of Thailand over a period of three years. After their training, they achieved excellent results alongside China, Korea and Japan, the leading team in Asia. The team beat Japan in 2001 to become the second runner-up in the 11th Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship held in Thailand. The junior team beat Korea and Japan in 2002 to become the first runner-up in the 11th Asian Junior Women’s Volleyball Championship in Vietnam. Thailand’s senior women’s team is currently placed 12th in the FIVB world ranking.

Following the success of the previous years, the association has launched another project called the “2004 National Team Project”, which has been supported by BEC World since the end of 2001.

Mr. Sutichai is now in his second year as the head coach of Thailand’s women’s team. He is one of the best coaches in Thailand and has worked very hard to create many new players for the development and promotion of volleyball in Thailand and also in the south-east Asian zone.

Because of the success of his teams from the grass roots level competitions up to national and international levels, he was invited to work with the Thai national women’s team in 2005. In spite of tough pressure as a newcomer for the national team, he led Thailand’s women to success in many international competitions, especially to defend the Champion Title of the South East Asian Games in the Philippines last year with an excellent result.

Although the result in the 2005 World Grand Prix was disappointing, Mr. Sutichai expects to get a better result for the team in 2006.
