MILO: Get Your Child into Sports!
Annual summer clinic strengthens commitment to nutrition and sports for child development
Manila, Philippines, May 6, 2019 – There’s still time to make the most out of your child’s summer break with the second wave of the MILO Summer Sports Clinics this May until June. With its unwavering commitment to provide the nutritious energy to get more children into sports, MILO’s yearly program continues to offer a wide array of exciting sports activities that kids can participate in throughout the summer.
As part of the longstanding “Get Your Child into Sports” advocacy, the MILO Summer Sports Clinics aims to reinforce the importance of sports in a child’s holistic development. Children today are faced with numerous barriers that hinder them from engaging in sports such as digital distractions, lack of safe play places, and fear of trying. MILO’s annual summer program seeks to address these challenges by highlighting sports as a means not only to get kids active but also to teach valuable life lessons one can learn outside the classroom.
Energizing More Children
This year, MILO makes the Summer Sports Clinics accessible to more aspiring young athletes as they continue their expansion in the Visayas and Mindanao region. The clinics started nationwide the last end-March and continue this May until June, in over 700 venues to more than 30,000 children nationwide.
Arnis, Ultimate Frisbee, and Wushu are this year’s newest additions to the program’s sports offerings. Apart from those sports, the MILO Summer Sports Clinics will continue to provide training to different sports disciplines, namely Badminton, Basketball, Chess, Fencing, Football, Futsal, Golf, Gymnastics, Karatedo, Lawn Tennis, Parkour, Swimming, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Touch Rugby, and Volleyball.
To further enhance the summer clinic experience of the participants, select clinic organizers will offer a MILO Welcome Kit that contains an exclusive Summer Sports Clinics drawstring bag and MILO to ensure the participants will get their Champion Energy Nutrients when they embark on their summer courses.
“MILO contains Champion Energy Nutrients such as milk, Protomalt, B-Vitamins, and Iron to help children get active especially in sports,” said Willy De Ocampo, Nestlé Philippines Vice President. “So, not only will the kids get the physical and social benefits at the Summer Sports Clinics, they will also be provided with the nutritious energy of MILO.”
Nourishing Champions Through the Years
For more than 35 years, MILO prides itself in partnering with a roster of esteemed organizations such as the BEST Center and Philippine Taekwondo Association among many others, that have been instrumental in maintaining the sports excellence that the Summer Sports Clinics is known for.
Expert coaches and instructors who have competed and won in local and international competitions such as the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games and the Olympics will handle the programs. These mentors use modern and scientific approaches that will help participants gain an appreciation for the different sports, live a healthy and active lifestyle, and embody the morals of discipline, confidence, teamwork, perseverance, and hard work.
By centering on values in sports, MILO’s Summer Sports Clinics along with its other sports programs, have created outstanding personas in the sporting scene. The roster of alumni includes BEST Center graduate Chris Tiu, Taekwondo clinic graduate, and SEA Games medalist Japoy Lizardo, and Gymnastics clinic graduate and SEA Games gold medalist Kaitlyn De Guzman.
“We look forward to nurturing more children to be champions not just as athletes but also as individuals,” said Luigi Pumaren, MILO Sports Executive. “We encourage parents to introduce their kids to a fun, active and healthy lifestyle and make their summer worthwhile with the MILO Summer Sports Clinics.”
