Last November 28 to 30, 2015, Alaska Milk holds its 20th Alaska Football Cup at the Alabang Country Club.   It is the biggest fooball event for young athletes of all ages, as young as 6 years old.

“This marks another monumental event for Alaska. We have 410 teams and a total of 6,150 football players together in one venue, all united by their love for football.  It is of great pride to witness how the Alaska Sports Program has engaged young athletyes into this kind of culture, and how they live by the values inherited in sports”  – Wilfred Uytengsu, President and CEO of Alaska Milk Corporation.

The Alaska Football Cup is one of the highly anticipated football event.  School teams and football clubs from all over the Philippines including Masbate, Baguio, Negros Occidental, Cebu, Davao, Palawan, Legaspi, Laguna, Batangas, Bukidnon, Zambales, Pampanga, Tarlac, Ilocos, Bicol, Romblon, Davao Sur, Compostela Valley, Quezon, Cavite, Albay, Pangasinan, Bacolod, Iloilo, Mindoro and Metro Manila will participate.

Alaska Milk encourages sports engagement to instill the values of determination, discipline, hardwork, team work and sportsmanship as early as six years old.  Its goal for children is to help them achieve the “winning form”.

Engaging in sports like this provide an active alternative in place of passive activities like watching television, surfing the internet, or spending too much time on social media.  It helps kids boost physical and mental development.

 

During the 3 days of the tournament, I was amazed with the kids.
