National Sports Day  in Jamaica was held at the Herbert Morrison Technical High School in Montego Bay, St. James. The day got off to a great start as the young people’s enthusiasm and the competitive spirit filled the air.

The day’s activities were put on hold for a period due to the heavy downpour of rain. This resulted in the cancellation of volleyball as the officials made a careful examination of the slippery conditions of that court and deemed it harmful to players. Despite the wet conditions, the athletics and basketball went on.

Special commendations to the planning team who worked behind the scenes to make certain that all things were in place. Youth for Christ in Jamaica is grateful to all the officials who volunteered their time and talent for the day.
