The Inter District Track & Field Championship will take place on Wednesday, 23rd March, 2016 at the Beausejour Stadium in Gros Islet. 500 student athletes will be expected to participate in the event which seeks to highlight the young sporting talent from schools across the island.
Officials from the Ministry of Youth Development and sports have noted that from the individual schools’ sports meet, there has been a noticeable improvement in the fitness level of the athletes which has been attributed to complimentary training by private sports clubs. The races are therefore expected to be keenly contested amongst all districts.
Parents, students and well-wishers are encouraged to attend the games at a cost of $3.00 per student and $5.00 per adult. Sponsors for this event include Piton Malta, Harris Paints along with technical support from the Saint Lucia Athletics Association and the Ministry of Youth Development and Sports.
