Huge opportunities for Carifta 2016

2In early August this year Team Athletics St Vincent and the Grenadines (TASVG) has named and engaged a very large training squad for the Carifta Games scheduled to be held in Grenada over the Easter weekend in neighbouring Grenada.

If all goes well and the athletes live up to expectations we could easily see the largest national representative track and field contingent of all time to leave local shores for regional and international competition.

Following the completion of the Carifta Trials the Selection Committee of Team Athletics St Vincent and the Grenadines (TASVG), headed by Technical Director, Gideon Labban, identified several athletes for further training and participation in regional and international competitions for 2011.

As always however, all home-based athletes must participate in the annual Championships scheduled for 28 May 2011. Failing to participate without an appropriate excuse received in advance of the Championships would result in their being omitted from any possible team for the rest of the year.
