People often ask us: What happens to players after the Camps?

Do they get signed and get into professional football or do they just continue playing for their previous clubs/teams?

The answer depends completely on the player. Regardless of their level, every player needs to continue to work hard and implement the insights, personal feedback, and mentoring they have received at the camp into their development after the camp.

But once they have started working with Train Effective, our coaches & mentors are doing their best to help all our players in a way that makes the most sense for the individual situation of a player. For some, this will show results very quickly, for some it might take a few more months and years.

For one of our players, Siam Yapp it took for example only 4 months to sign his first professional contract after he joined a Train Effective Football Camp.

Siam joined our first-ever Train Effective Football Camp in August 2021. Right from the start, Siam showed the type of attitude we want to instil in every Train Effective player! Unwavering determination, mental fortitude, and the ability to listen and learn quickly.

This attitude in combination with his hard work at the camp has paid off tremendously: on January 1st 2022 Siam signed his first Pro Contract with Police Tero FC (1st League in Thailand).

And Siam has not only impressed in his home country but message reached all the way to Germany. And not just to any club in Germany, but it was Rekordmeister and 6-time CL winner FC Bayern Munich who signed him for the FC Bayern World Squad!

But Siam didn't stop there! On January 17th, 2024, he signed for Buriram United in the Thai Premier League which is currently not only the best team in Thailand but also play in the AFC Champions League!

One can only wonder to what heights Siam will reach over the next couple of years, considering that he’s still only 19 years old and possesses an English passport which would make him eligible to play in the Premier League and English National Team.

If you want to learn more about how Siam set him self-up for his future success while studying at one of the best colleges in his country, check out this episode of the Train Effective Podcast.

And you can do so too!

Regardless of where you are on your journey, we can help you reach the next step in your football career! Just book a call with our Camp Expert Sam Shaban, a former professional player himself.

"I attended the Train effective camp with the aim of improving my mentality and motivation for further investment in football. I am curious about my capabilities as a player and whether they rhyme with my goals and dreams. The stay was my first trip alone so a good adult education to become the best version of myself came as a bonus. I highly recommend Train Effective. I will definitely be back!"

"Going into the camp, I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was soon to realize how amazing this camp really was. You gain more than just knowledge and development in your football abilities, but on top of that, you gain amazing friendships with coaches and people you look forward to seeing everyday at the camp and crying from having to leave them at the end. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for anybody considering to go!"
