B has never been a sporty kid so I had mixed feelings bringing him along to a MILO Sports Clinic. He plays volleyball and a little badminton but he shies away from basketball and soccer. During the sports clinic though, he made a promise to me that he would try almost everything and he kept his word.
They were all divided into groups and for B's group, the first thing they tried was TENNIS. They were taught how to catch and pitch the balls. B showed great potential and was actually commended by the trainers. When I asked him which of the sports he tried on were his favorite, he said that part of his top pick is tennis.
After almost 20 minutes doing tennis, they were sent off to CHESS. It wasn't B's favorite but because his Aunt K loves chess, he knew a little about chess and could play a little of it. B listened to the teacher but they were not able to play due to time constraints.
3rd stop was PINGPONG. B liked this one. It seems that he likes anything remotely related to badminton. He knew how to balance the ball and he was able to follow suit on the movements without any problems. If I didn't know it any better, I would say that given the chance, it seems that he could be very sporty.
Next stop would be VOLLEYBALL. B definitely had a knack for this and he was able to hit all the volleys sent his way by the coach. I feel really happy about this because I played volleyball when I was in high school.
B then tried on basketball where again, he seemed to have a natural talent. I'm not being a stage Mom here. It's just that the people conducting the training noticed it too and they have recommended that I should let him pursue these sports.
I loved that B was almost to try on everything except GYMNASTICS. He tried it but then his chest started hurting so he asked if I could stop. It seems that he is not for gymnastics. I'm just happy to see my son exploring and doing activities that did not involve gadgets. Thank you MILO and I'll make sure that my son has sports activities this summer. After all, we have enough MILO to drink everyday and build champions.
The MILO program has over 700 venues nationwide that will offer a total of 17 sports - Badminton, Basketball, Bowling, Chess, Fencing, Football, Golf, Gymnastics, Ice Skating, Karatedo, Swimming, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Tennis, Touch Rugby, Triathlon, and Volleyball.

That sounds like a great way to help get kids more involved in sports. I would love to take my kids.ReplyDelete
I love that he learned about different sports. What a great event.ReplyDelete
My son wasn't that into sports at that age either. He did try basketball and was pretty good on defense. However, on offense, not so much. You know when a player throw the ball in from the sideline and all their teammates put up their hands, "Over here!" Not my son, he just stood there. When I asked him why he said that the other kids really want the ball and I don't really care.ReplyDelete
My youngest son has never been into sports much but my daughter would probably like to play tennis or badminton.ReplyDelete
Aw it is wonderful that he tried everything and he seems like a pro at tennis well done little man! How old is he?ReplyDelete

I think it's fabulous to expose kids to all kinds of sports. You never know which one is going to stick!ReplyDelete
This sounds like a great program for kids! :)ReplyDelete
I drink Milo every morning. This is great to know that they are involved with kids. A milo sports clinic with activities and fun.ReplyDelete
He looks so adorable, I'm glad he tried all the sports. If that were my girls, they would shy away from everything unless I'm allowed to play it too. Lol. I love that MILO is encouraging kids to play more and be active in sports.ReplyDelete
I would love to take my kids there. Sure their sport skills will improve. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
MILO...that familiar green and white....there are few parents and kids who are not familiar with this company....I loved drinking milo...LOLReplyDelete

This looks like so much fun! My kids would love it :)ReplyDelete
This looks like a lot of fun. Keeps your kids entertained and moving so they learn things and are tired when they come home ;)ReplyDelete
I grew up on the Milo Chocolate milk mix. Remember the commercial? M! I! L! O! MILO!!ReplyDelete
Wow this kid is a sure athlete. I'm a Milo kid myself. When I was 9, I joined basketball clinic and it sure helps me a lot during my school years and even now. Introducing kids to sports is a huge impact in life.ReplyDelete
That's a fun way to make an introductio to sports. I think they should take the Chess out though, it's a big tease if you don't get to play a bit, lolReplyDelete
This is something that we need here in my area. There isn't much to do and I feel that my son ends up on the tv instead.ReplyDelete
If only we are in Philippines right now, I would definitely join my sons to any sports clinic that Milo organizes.ReplyDelete
What a fun way for kids to learn about sports. I am glad your little one had a good experience.ReplyDelete
It's good to introduce new sports to kids at a early age. I started playing basketball at age 7 and i'm 13 now and I'm still playing and I love it even more.ReplyDelete
My son has shown some interest in sports but not this much. This looks like a fun way to learn though.ReplyDelete
