The four-day multi-city track and field meet got underway at the Kim Collins Athletic Stadium in St. Kitts on Thursday, March 14 and continues on Friday, March 15 before heading to Nevis.

At a recent press conference between St. Kitts and Nevis (SKN) Athletics and the Ministries of Sports for St. Kitts and the Nevis Island Administration (NIA), Minister of Education, Youth and Sports on Nevis the Honourable Troy Liburd said competitions such as the Interschool Championships can be a catalyst to athletes advancing to the collegiate level and beyond.

“This of course is an Olympic year and I’m hopeful that we are going to find some gems, somebody to go out and represent the Federation if not this year maybe sometime in the future, and I know that Interschool is a big part of finding those gems where we can get some of our students to go off to get scholarships, so I definitely endorse Interschool.”

Minister Liburd assured the general public that the NIA’s Department of Sports, in conjunction with stakeholders from St. Kitts, is ready and fully prepared to host the premiere athletics event.
