"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

"Tekkerz is a great club"

"Among many business minded football clubs Tekkerz is a great club with high professional standards and committed management and coaches. The coaches are amazing and know how to inspire children and get the best out of them."

M.R, U9 Parent

"exceptional commitment and passion"

"Coach Baz’s deep passion for football has a great influence on my son.  His exceptional commitment and passion in coaching young players make him not just the best coach but also the role model of my son.”

Denise C, U9 Parent

"Extremely flexible and forward thinking"

"Dirk and Baz have been extremely flexible and forward thinking with their adaptations to classes with the many changing situations in HK over the last few months. Most importantly Baz’s positivity, sense of humour and enthusiasm is contagious and this is reflected in the children’s interest in the sessions.”

Mr C Barr, U10 & U8 Parent

"Great coach and engages with the kids"

"Coach Baz is a great coach and engages with the kids very well. George has lots of fun going to his classes and within only a few sessions, actually learnt some great football skills. Thank you.”

"Coaches Baz, Jordan, Shu & Stevic are all very good coaches"

"We have signed up for the Tekkerz program for a few years. Coaches Baz, Jordan, Shu & Stevic are all very good coaches, they always have different ways to stimulate the children's interest in football and explore their potential. We are very happy to have such coaches to accompany our kid for developing more in the football field.”
