The National Sports Commission’s (NSC) 4th Annual Special School Sports will run off from Tuesday (November 26) and will last for three days (other dates November 27 and 29).

The main objective of this year’s event, according to NSC Director of Sport, Christopher Jones, is ending the discrimination against ‘special’ athletes.

Meanwhile, Technical Development Officer (TDO) of the NSC, Seon Erskine, on behalf of the commission, noted that they are elated in having a key hand in the rehabilitation of special needs students.

Director Jones pointed out that the NSC is in full support of the special sports as it is now a consistent way of allowing the athletes to compete in any sport discipline with success despite their challenges.

The athletes, who will come from schools such as St. Barnabas, David Rose Special School and other institutions, will compete in male and female categories in the various disciplines.

The event will kick off at National Gymnasium with a number of indoor sports on Tuesday (November 26), the athletes will then head to Colgrain Pool for the swim meet on November 27 and will culminate with the track and field leg at the Police Sports Club ground, Eve Leary on November 29.
