TESTIMONIALS

Mark Davies, Senior Coordinator of Physical Education - Korean International School, Hong Kong
We took 40 boys and girls to Sabah to play football and basketball against local schools and clubs.  Borneo Sports Holidays organised everything from accommodation and training sessions to opposition and recreation and our students had a thoroughly good time. Nelson, our guide and Hamza, our driver were fantastic, as was Scott who matched us up with teams of similar ability for really competitive and enjoyable games. We are already in the planning stage for a return trip next year. Many thanks guys.


Kory Babington, Football Co-Ordinator - Endeavour Sports School, Sydney, Australia
The Borneo football Cup was a great cultural and football experience for all of our students. The experience of playing in first class stadiums, against quality international opponents in challenging hot, humid conditions is beneficial to all of our players development. As Australia now compete and qualify through Asia this tournament "makes sense" for our players who wish to kick on to the highest levels of Australian football.


Steve Kalend, Executive Officer for School Sport Australia
I am writing to formally thank you most sincerely for your kind and generous invitation to attend the 2nd Borneo Football Cup in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah earlier this month. It was a truly wonderful experience for me and I’m sure for all the participants and the many parents who attended. I was immediately struck by the similarities in the way which you organise the event to our own School Sport Australia Event Philosophy – all about using sport to provide the kids with a total sporting, educational and cultural experience.

Highlights for me during the week included:
  • The passion with which teams played their matches
  • The commitment and enthusiasm of the team management and the accompanying parents
  • The excellent stadiums used for the competition
  • The superb location for the event
  • The wonderful sighseeing and cultural opportunities available to teams
  • The excellent accommodation provided for teams
  • The positive reaction to the ex Socceroos - your event "ambassadors"

You are to be congratulated on both the concept and overall organization of the event. Everything ran smoothly - nothing was too much trouble and no request was denied. I will certainly be doing my best to assist in whatever way possible in promoting your event in 2010 through our state school sports associations. Our 2009 School Sport Australia Conference is on next week and I have already organized to include on the agenda a report of my visit to your event.


Ian Mehta, Head of Middle School at Jerudong International School, Brunei
For some time now we have been looking into ways of providing some 11-a-side competitive fixtures for our younger students at JerudongInternational School. The Figos Borneo Football Cup provided the ideal solution. We had the opportunity to take a squad of 16 players to compete against strong opposition. The impact that this competition had upon the development of our players was enormous and we hope to be involved for many years to come. However, it was the quality of the whole experience that was so beneficial to our boys. Travelling to Kota Kinabalu and enjoying some of the tourist attractions that Sabah has to offer was an absolute pleasure. The staff of Borneo Sports and Adventure went out of their way to make sure that every detail was taken care of and they made us feel so welcome. Thanks to Scott and all the team - we hope to see you again next year.
