Furthermore, the Best Male Player of the Tournament and the Referees’ choice awards at the SITT 2012 also went to two HK Blue Dragons Players.

Vikings Football Club
Our school is all about fun for children from age 18 months and up. We teach the core skills of soccer – the beautiful game – in a safe, sharing environment to allow your child to prosper and grow.
Our wish is to see all our players develop a lifelong love of the game and all the benefits inherent in being part of a team: from the physical soccer skills they learn to the meaning of teamwork, hard work and responsibility.
All our dedicated football coaches have one thing in common – they have all played the game at a professional or semi-professional level, and have attained industry-recognized coaching qualifications. We can therefore provide the highest level of coaching in both English and Cantonese for children of all abilities and mindsets.
If your child could benefit from learning and enjoying playing football with kids their own age, please contact us and we’d be delighted to explain more.

Starting at the New York City Marathon on the 4th November 2018 and ending 100 marathons around the world later, #RunningDry is a call to each of us to save water and to join together to change the way that we all use, consume and think about water. After 62 marathons in 62 days, Mina ran so hard she broke her leg… But that didn’t stop the #RunningDry movement – it made it stronger.
Our planet’s water resources are under extreme stress. Experts predict that by 2030 our demand for water will be 40% greater than the supplies available. We are literally #RunningDry.
We can’t continue like this. We owe the next generation a better planet. We need to act: now.
Each one of us has the power to help solve our world’s water crisis. Whether it’s turning off the tap when we brush our teeth, reducing our food waste, or innovating new ways to save water, every action matters and every drop counts. Individually we can make an impact. Together we can change the world.
We want to make saving water famous. To create a global community of water-conscious citizens who care about water, and are willing to act to avert the global water crisis.
We need to make saving water not just the right thing to do, but the only thing to do.
