“MILO contains Champion Energy Nutrients such as milk, Protomalt, B-Vitamins, and Iron to help children get active especially in sports,” said De Ocampo. “So, not only will the kids get the athletic 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.
MILO Champion and former national athlete Japoy Lizardo shares his inspiring journey into sports, as a product of the program himself, and how it has helped him now as a proud coach and father.
“We look forward to nurture 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.”
MILO Sports Marketing Executive Luigi Pumaren encourages parents to get their kids into sports this summer to learn values such as teamwork, discipline, and confidence.
Driven by the “Get Your Child into Sports” campaign, 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 into sports such as digital distractions, lack of safe play places, and fear of trying. MILO’s annual summer clinic 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.
MILO Sports Marketing Executive Lester P. Castillo talks about the brand's vision to bring invaluable sports opportunities to more and more children around the country.
