The onset of Summer and the end of school meant a lot of spare time for the kids at home. While parents can always leave the kids to their gadgets, what’s a better way to spend summer than to train the kids to be more physically active by engaging into sports.
Playing a sport does not only benefit kids to be healthy and physically active, actively playing a sport also engages kids to develop their skills and values and shapes them into better individuals. A kid that is heavily involved into sports are more active, has better social and mental skills and obviously, healthier than those who spend their time playing gadgets or hooked to their laptops, lost in social media.
In fact, in a study conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute’s 7th National Survey in 2008, 2 out of 10 children are overweight, while undernutrition affects 3 out of 10 kids nationwide.
This summer, Alaska is proud to announce the opening of the 2016 leg of the Alaska Power Camp featuring intensive coaching lessons in basketball, volleyball and football. The summer sports program inspires girls and boys to engage into sports. More than improving their skills in any of the three sports, the child is also encouraged to be a better individual through the development of Power Camp values of discipline, determination, hard work, team work and sportsmanship.
An added cherry on top is the presence of notable names on their respective sports who will serve as coaches on the duration of the camp. These include PBA legend and Alaska Aces assistant coach Jeffrey Cariaso who will lead the basketball coaches; former professional football player and currently Alaska Power Camp Project Director and Alabang Football School and Makati Football School director Tomas Lozano who will helm the Alaska Football Power Camp; and Philippine Super Liga volleyball player and former De La Salle University Lady Spikers star player Michelle Gumabao who will take the helm for the Alaska Volleyball Power Camp.
Tracing its roots 30 years ago with the first staging of the Power Camp in 1982, Alaska continues to invest heavily in training and inspiring the youth to be successful sportsmen.
In an interview with Alaska VP for Marketing Blen Fernando, she stressed the commitment of the number one milk brand to continuously contribute to nation building by developing the youth of today through sports.
