As we enter the new academic year and the challenges that may present themselves, I take great pleasure in welcoming all new student athletes to the department. I know the feeling of apprehension that can accompany you as you make the bold move to college. Fear Not, the Athletic Department will be your guide. We will form the nucleus of change when we combine efforts with those who have walked the path before us and are standing ready to create a year of not just being competitive but one of athletic dominance. Last year, our Track & Field programme led the way in Intercol Sport lifting both the male and female titles, then culminating with a championship of American title at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia USA. We intend to build on such performance for this year of competitions.
To our returning student athletes, let us continue to be a cohesive department and strive to improve all areas that need strengthening in 2016/17 as the G.C. Foster Lions can realize its full potential.
This year we will see the addition of a Research and Testing Lab to the department, which will benefit not just our college athletes but also the wider Jamaica sporting fraternity.
Over the past year, the college garnered huge support from the business community and individual sponsors; as a department, we must express our appreciation for such support and crave their partnership once more for Jamaica’s next set of great athletes.
To the Board of Management, and the Principal, the Athletic Department gives its personal mandate to add value to all sport we participate in, whether at the intercollegiate or club level. Once again, I implore all to embrace the changes that will come as the department remains committed to the vision and mission of the college and stand ready to assist all in making what is good even better.
