Fila Golf - the internationally recognized sportswear brand for men and women exclusively licensed in North America by Fersten Worldwide - announce its sponsorship of the KMR School of Golf, a non-profit foundation based at Ko' Olau Golf Club that helps youth in Hawaii become world-class junior players.

Through this partnership, Fila Golf will provide a wide range of apparel and accessories to all KMR students for use in local, national and international golf competitions. Under the direction of founder and top-rated instructor Kevin Ralbovsky, KMR trains young golfers from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds to help obtain college scholarships and launch professional careers. The school's pupils have qualified for every major amateur and junior national championship, as well as the U.S. Open and U.S. Women's Open.

"Our youthful styling will help these future stars dress like the Tour pros they are striving to become," says Nancy Robitaille, principal designer. "Given Kevin's devotion and track record, the sky's the limit for these new Fila Golf ambassadors."

Inspired by 1950s prep school athletics, Fila Golf's latest offerings showcase fine details as well as utilizing the company's premium performance fabrics, including the popular single-jersey Moss and recycled polyester. Many pieces boast Tech-Dry and anti-bacterial technology for moisture-wicking and odor-free wear. The collection is completed by Fila Golf's first-ever outerwear line, including wind/rain resistant jackets, textured fleece and soft shell jackets.

"These clothes are incredibly lightweight and comfortable, which helps our students swing easier and play their best," says Ralbovsky. "This support really says a lot about Fila Golf's commitment to growing the game in Hawaii and around the world."

A PGA of America Approved Golf School, the KMR School of Golf was founded in 2001 by award-winning instructor Kevin M. Ralbovsky, PGA. Established as an educational institution to train exceptionally talented junior golfers from Hawaii, the school is located at the Ko' Olau Golf Club in Kaneohe.

Fila celebrated its centennial anniversary, a milestone for this historic brand established a century ago by the Fila brothers of Biella, Italy. Fila is a leading manufacturer of sport and leisure footwear and apparel distributed worldwide.
