Progressive Sports Asia Limited (PSA) designs and delivers innovative and technically focused sports coaching and performance programs for individuals, sports clubs and schools throughout Hong Kong.
Tekkerz® is a football program and multi-level curriculum designed to develop the technical skills of individual players and overall game play using a ‘maximum touch’ approach. Based around hundreds of skills and ball mastery exercises, players practice dynamic high-intensity drills that encourage a lot of touches of the ball in short periods of time.
In typical training sessions with other clubs, a player may touch the ball 200 times. With Tekkerz, players touch the ball 200 times in the first 5 minutes, and over 1,000 times in a session. Players and parents also receive access to the Tekkerz® Player Development Platform, giving access to a 12-level skills program to help their development outside of sessions.
Activ8 is a series of dynamic movement pattern programs, similar to SAQ, specially designed for children aged from 3 years of age to 18 years of age. For kindergarten (Dynamic Kids) and primary age children (Activ8 Clubs), programs are run before, during or after school either within school or as open programs, and are based on dynamic movement patterns to stimulate, encourage and progress physical literacy.
For secondary students or student athletes who are competitive in any sports discipline, the Activ8 program titled Dynamic Movement Patterns (DMP) is designed for these students to develop and increase their ability with speed, agility, balance and quickness as well as coordination and correction of running mechanics.

FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
"We Love Tekkerz"
“We absolutely love Tekkerz! My son joined Tekkerz in 2017 as one of the first joiners. My son has thrived and enjoys it so much. The coaching team provide a fun and friendly environment for the kids to excel in. The level of coaching is excellent and helps kids truly develop as individual players and as a team. It is amazing how much talent that the coaches are able to develop from the kids. The coaches are not just good, they are great role models! Also, Tekkerz is like a family. Approachable, fair and always willing to go that extra distance. They really take the time to help your child feel settled and comfortable which makes me a proud parent with my decision."
Mrs Thomas, U8 Parent
"Outstanding Football Coaching"
“PSA and the Tekkerz program has given all three of my sons an outstanding football coaching experience. The program itself has allowed them to develop skills, ball control and an ability to play the game in a really fun and engaging environment. Coach Baz in particular not only has the football skills and coaching ability to get the best of the players, he has a calm and nurturing disposition that children of all ages really enjoy”
Ben L, U6, U9 & U11 Parent
"High intensity training"
“Tekkerz has been everything we’ve wished from a football club since we moved to HK. The children swiftly develop skills from high intensity training sessions, games and tournaments that are geared to children of all ages and abilities. The coaches are superb at stimulating a love of football in the youngest ones, building their skills and ability up through the years, and producing talented football players in the Tekkerz philosophy. The Tekkerz community is more than a football club, it’s an extended family, and I couldn’t imagine DB without it.”
Barry R U8 Parent
"I highly recommend the Tekkerz"
"“I highly recommend the Tekkerz program. Their maximum touch philosophy and time spent on the ball means that no child gets left behind no matter what their skill level. Baz is a brilliant coach who knows how to get the best out of every child he works with. He creates a fun atmosphere for children while teaching all the skills required to develop as a football player and person.”
D Fryer U10 Parent
