Caribbean Utilities Company, the main corporate sponsor of the CIAA, has supported this event for over 25 years, which has served as a launching pad for virtually all the Island’s leading Athletes.  The Championships will see competition in six age group categories: 7-8; 9-10; 11-12; 13-14; 15-16 and 17 and over competing in a wide cross section of track & field events.

Of special interest will be the performance of the Carifta Age Group Athletes, which consists of two age group categories i.e. Under 17 and Under 20 boys and girls. This year’s Carifta Games will be held in the Bahamas from 29 March to 1 April and we have athletes who are very close to achieving the qualification mark and we trust they will be successful in their quest.
