Scomi MyKids

As a global corporate citizen, Scomi is proud to be associated with the world's most popular sport - football.

Through Scomi-MyKids, a programme involving a nationwide talent search to unearth the best young football talents to be developed into footballing heroes of the future, we have managed to bring renewed interest in this sport. Trials were conducted at various locations across the country and over 2,000 schoolchildren participated in the trials. Nine of the best talents had the football experience of a lifetime in Manchester, UK when they were sent there for a week’s visit under Scomi-MyKids programme.

Scomi MyKids Holiday Camp

Launched in July 2007, Scomi MyKids is a unique programme sponsored by Scomi to unearth the best football talents among children aged 12 years and below. At the same time, the programme has created a lot of hype and renewed interest in football among children, which augurs well for the overall football development in Malaysia. Scomi hopes its efforts complement programme and other efforts under the Ministry of Youth and Sports and other sports bodies.

Nine (9) of the best young players or winners from the trials held in 4 venues of over 2,000 kids were rewarded with a trip to Manchester, UK in September 2007 for a football experience of a lifetime.

As a follow-up to that trip, Scomi has put in place a comprehensive football and personal development training programme for these 9 young stars.  This is part of its plans under the Scomi MyKids programme for its “The Making Of Stars”, the second phase of this programme.

The first pilot programme developmental programme, Scomi Holiday Camp ran from 1st – 5th June 2008 in Selangor, Malaysia.  8 out of the 9 children attended the programme which was packed with football training consisting of football skills and techniques, motivational and educational trips and team building activities. 

The football training is conducted by the professional coaches from the world renowned football school, the Brazilian Football Academy (BFA).  The educational tours to the National Science Centre and the PETRONAS Science Centre hope to give the children knowledge into how things work around them.  Teambuilding and motivational activities along the themes of working together, new ideas, goal oriented and being customer responsible which are Scomi’s brand values were weaved into the activities. 

In addition to excelling in football, the children are encouraged to also excel in their school academic results.  Scomi will track their progress both in the football and academic aspects by working closely with their parents and teachers and through the evidence of their school report cards.
