MILO Skills and Drills

MILO Skills and Drills

North Harbour primary school students got up close and personal with the Blues at the annual MILO Skills and Drills Day this week.

Several schools from North Harbour had the chance to join in with the full Blues squad in training drills and other fun activities at the Takapuna Rugby Club.
The participating schools included Stanley Bay, Belmont Primary, Beachhaven, Silverdale, Greenhithe, St Marys, Campbells Bay and Red Beach.
ìThe Blues love to be out among our young fans and have some fun with them,î said Blues captain Jerome Kaino. ìMany of us are parents and we know that it is important for kids to be active and have fun, and this is a great way for us to give a little bit back to our community and our young fans.î
The MILO Skills and Drills initiative, a partnership between NestlÈ and the Blues, has been a regular programme in the region for a decade.
ìAt NestlÈ, we believe it is very important to encourage all Kiwi children to take part in sport and to be active and eat a healthy diet,î said Sheena Hendon, Marketing Service Manager for NestlÈ NZ.
ìOur on-going association with the Blues is part of the NestlÈ Choose Wellness programme that provides many children with the opportunity to be active in sport.î
