MILO Press Release: Manila, Philippines – MILO once again makes summer the perfect time for children to learn a new sport with the MILO Summer Sports Clinics, the most widely participated sports program in the country. With its commitment to discovering and developing tomorrow’s champion athletes, MILO encourages school children to make the most of their summer vacation by learning sports and taking on new challenges.

The clinics will be available in over 700 venues to 30,000 students nationwide.
Start your child’s champion journey today and enroll them in the MILO Summer Sports Clinics. Each sports clinic has an array of schedules and venues children and their parents can choose from. Training is handled by able and expert coaches and instructors who use the modern, scientific approach, with character-forming lessons incorporated in their program. Children will not only learn champion moves but also champion values such as determination, discipline, teamwork, perseverance, hard work, respect, and confidence, which will help them become winners on and off the court.
“The MILO Summer Sports Clinics is an avenue for children to learn the fundamentals of sports and be encouraged to lead an active lifestyle. They will be able to learn new skills, while making new friends along the way,” said Robbie De Vera, MILO Sports Executive.
