Competition helps children to develop their skills and also encourages hard work - and TopTekkers provides the perfect platform for your child to compete with players from all around the world!

If your children are involved in healthy competition, they may:

  • ask to participate in the activity again
  • be able to win and lose gracefully
  • learn new skills and want to better themselves
  • enjoy improved self esteem

Children with a healthy sense of competition learn from an early age that they should try their best and give their all to everything they do.

"Instilling kids with a solid competitive nature means asking them what their goals for themselves are, not what their teachers or parents want," says Liz Morrison, a therapist specializing in child and adolescent therapy. Read more here.
