VMBS/St. James Football Association U-13 Football Competition
Victoria Mutual has been given the opportunity to positively influence lives of youth in western Jamaica through The VMBS/ St. James Football Association Under-13 Football Competition. Since the development of this programme in 1990, the Society has witnessed the positive impact of this competition on the young boys who participate each year.
Most of the youth, if not all, take away the values of discipline, teamwork, fair play and commitment, which are encouraged throughout the competition. This competition has also been credited with contributing to Jamaica’s football, by developing the talents of numerous players from the western section of the island who have gone on to play professionally, including Dane Richards, Richard McCallum, Deshaun Woolery, Sean Bucknor, Eshane Wilkins and Donovan “Tall P” Ricketts
We believe in and will continue to promote the importance of participation in sporting activity, and its potential for shaping the behaviour of the next generation.
