Track and Field
ISSA Boys and Girls Championships
We served as one of the main sponsors for this event for 14 years. As a result, many young athletes got the opportunity to showcase their athletic abilities and benefitted from the financial assistance provided in the form of scholarships, awards and grants. Our involvement in Champs eventually led to our sponsorship of the Penn Relays.
As the main sponsor of the Boys’ and Girls’ Championships for 14 years, The Victoria Mutual Group thought it was particularly important and that it was a natural fit to support the Jamaican athletes at the Penn Relays. After all, our primary purpose for doing the sponsorship was to create opportunities for our youths to practise their athletic skills and develop the confidence in order to compete well at the highest international levels. Held after the Championships each year, the Penn Relays represents the first “world stage” opportunity for which we prepared our Jamaican youngsters participating in the Boys’ and Girls’ Championships.
