“Since the establishment of the Maltina School Games, we have demonstrated our passion and commitment to nurturing growing children and being an integral part of their development.

“For us at Nigerian Breweries, we understand that to make any real impact in any sector, we must begin at the grassroots level. Sport training for children goes beyond sports in itself but also includes the development of related faculties, critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, social skills, persistence, creativity, and self-control. Since school is where children spend the majority of their waking hours, we must work towards recognising and honing the sports inclination of every child.

“We are indeed grateful for the support and reception each edition has received over the years, and we are optimistic for the new champions that will be unveiled at this year’s Maltina School Games,” he stated.

Track and field competitions for participation include 100m, 200m sprints, 400m, 800m, 4×100m relays, long jump, high jump, javelin, and shot put.
