IPSAC AND ISSAC 2018 – Excitement Galore

On Wednesday of this week St Vincent and the Grenadines observed National Heroes Day. Whilst we continue to engage in discussions about who should join Paramount Chief, Joseph Chatoyer, as a national hero, our young people at schools across the nation are in high spirits, attempting to become heroes in their own right, even if only for a brief period.

IPSAC and ISSAC 2017 in review

Exciting IPSAC and ISSAC Finals anticipated

 

On the eve of the annual Inter Primary Schools Athletics Championships (IPSAC) and the Inter Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (ISSAC), the athletics fraternity was greeted with the news that on yet another occasion, someone thought it a wise thing to literally break the lock of the storeroom of Team Athletics St Vincent and the Grenadines – located under the PH Veira pavilion – at the at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex, managed by the National Sports Council (NSC).

Growing concerns over school sports potential risks

In the recent past some concerns have been raised about the number of events some athletes contest at the annual Inter Primary Schools Athletics Championships (IPSAC) and the Inter Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (ISSAC).

Some are concerned that too many athletes are being asked to compete in too many events at a single sport meet, often in a single day, and are therefore not being allowed the opportunity to benefit from adequate recovery time between events.

The Schools Games Committee of the Ministry of Education has agreed to engage the relevant medical and sporting authorities in the discourse in order to arrive at an informed decision to place before the government for final consideration.

Are athletes being asked for too much?
