The biggest football event for young athletes attracted players of all ages, from as young as six years old.  They have gathered in one venue to participate in one of the longest-running and most successful grassroots-development programs in the local football scene.

“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,” shares Wilfred Uytengsu, President and CEO of Alaska Milk Corporation.  “It is of great pride to witness how the Alaska Sports Program has engaged young athletes into this kind of culture, and how they live by the values inherent in sports,” he further adds.

Alaska on developing the child’s “winning form”

Alaska Milk encourages sports engagement, as it instills the values of determination, discipline, hard work, team work and sportsmanship during the early stages of a child’s life.  Participation in sports like football helps them achieve the “winning form,” which has been Alaska’s goal for children since it launched its first football cup tournament in 1995.

Football provides an active alternative for children in place of passive activities such as watching television, surfing the Internet, or spending too much time on social media.  The National Nutrition Survey of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) reported that health issues are best addressed by adopting an active lifestyle along with healthy diet, and regular drinking of milk, at least twice daily.

Gear Review: Revo Cusp S

I tend to keep my outdoor runs as simple as possible and that includes my eye wear, or lack of preference thereof.  More often than not, I’m pretty much contented with the photochromic lenses of my eye glasses, until I rediscovered the joy of polarized lenses with the Revo Cusp S.

Visiting churches had become my tradition every Holy Week and this year is no different.  This time though, I did not go for numbers and instead picked seven churches that I really am fond of.
